ICL compiler error

I am building a big project and have been getting an error

icl: command line error: multiple sources; object output option must specify dir

Does anyone have any idea about the error.

This error occurs when you are trying to compile multiple files but you expect them to be compiled to one object file, i.e.:

!% icl -c t.c t2.c /Fofoo.obj

Microsoft gives this error:

!% cl -c t.c t2.c /Fofoo.obj

Hey,

Thanks for ur reply. However, I am not sure if that is a problem. I am not compiling 2 files into 1. This build works for Microsoft VC++. What is the meaning of "obj output option must specify dir"? Is there any way to get more information about error?

Thnx

I don't know of any way to get additional help for this option. We have a knowledge base for diagnostics but this one has not yet been filled in.

The /Fo optionsays in the help that it cantake a directory name if multiple files are used, i.e.:

/Fo[file]
name object file (or directory for multiple files; i.e. /FoMYDIR)

but I actually tried this and it doesn't seem to work.


Anyway, please supply a reproducer ... it sounds like a bug in our driverif it works with MSVC++.

thanks,
Judy

Hey,

Is there any chance of getting this error even if we are not using two files to create an object file? I checked my logs and it looks like .obj file has been created by only one file. Please, let me know if such scenarios possible.

Thanks,
Abhi

Hey,

Found the problem. It has nothing to do with compilation of source files. In every compilation of a source file, build was calling a perl script to check versions of files and that perl script had some problem. I removed invocation to that file and it worked.

Weird thing is kind of error message printed by the compiler. I am not sure why such weird error message was given.

Thanks,
Abhi
