VCCLCompilerTool.WholeProgramOptimization Property

Definition

Gets or sets a value indicating whether to enable cross-module optimizations by delaying code generation to link time. WholeProgramOptimization exposes the functionality of the compiler's /GL (Whole Program Optimization) option.

[System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(38)]
[get: System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(38)]
[set: System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(38)]
public bool WholeProgramOptimization { get; set; }
Property Value

true if cross-module optimizations are enabled; otherwise, false.

Remarks

It is better to set the VCCLCompilerTool object's WholeProgramOptimization property rather than to set the compiler property of the same name and the linker's LinkTimeCodeGeneration property.

The compiler's version of this property and the linker's LinkTimeCodeGeneration property are not available via the property pages.
