I am using Intel c++ compiler with VC++. If I understand correctly then xilink (Intel linker) makes a call to VC++ linker (link). Please, let me know if my understanding is correct as I am planning to use my current VC++ linker options as it is when shifting to Intel c++.
Yes. xilink may call the Intel compilerto do some multifile optimzation before calling Microsoft linke to make executable. If you using Intel compiler the it would be better to call xilink for linking and let the xilink decide when to call the microsoft linker.
