I will only discuss the 3 more important ones:
-I[Path] Change Include Path
-L[Path] Change Library Path
-G[File] Icon file
The compiler by default looks in the current directory for the .LIB
files and any include files. You can override this by specifying the above
command line switches. Since we're talking about C type parameters, there are
a few niceties you have to know about, first, the paths should be specified
You can use \ instead of / but there's a reason why / is preferred,
RC -I"c:\rapidq long dir\includes\"
If you never used C (or C++) you'll not likely see what I mean. If you
prefer the above command line, you have to add an extra \ to the end (or drop
it entirely), like so:
RC -I"c:\rapidq long dir\includes\\"
RC -I"c:\rapidq long dir\includes"
This is because C translates \" into " which is obvious to any C
programmer. Also, long file names must be enclosed in quotations. Those are
the catches, so now you know (or already knew).
Now, to change the default
icon for your .EXE file, you can use the -G command switch:
RC -Gzip.ico zipview.bas
When your ZIPVIEW.EXE file is generated, the file "zip.ico" will replace
the default icon. Please note that your icon must be 32x32 and 16 colors (also
