@ (Specify a Compiler Response File)
Specifies a compiler response file.
A text file containing compiler commands.
A response file can contain any commands that you would specify on the command line. This can be useful if you are working on a machine (Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows Millennium Edition) and your command-line arguments exceed 127 characters.
It is not possible to specify the @ option from within a response file. That is, a response file cannot embed another response file.
From the command line you can specify as many response file options (for example, @respfile.1 @respfile.2) as you want.
