/INCLUDE (Force Symbol References)
Specifies a symbol to be added to the symbol table.
The /INCLUDE option tells the linker to add a specified symbol to the symbol table.
To specify multiple symbols, type a comma (,), a semicolon (;), or a space between the symbol names. On the command line, specify /INCLUDE:
symbol once for each symbol.
The linker resolves
symbol by adding the object that contains the symbol definition to the program. This feature is useful for including a library object that otherwise would not be linked to the program.
Specifying a symbol with this option overrides the removal of that symbol by /OPT:REF.
