/FR, /Fr (Create .Sbr File)

Creates .sbr files.



During the build process, the Microsoft Browse Information File Maintenance Utility (BSCMAKE) uses these files to create a .BSC file, which is used to display browse information.

/FR creates an .sbr file with complete symbolic information.

/Fr creates an .sbr file without information on local variables.

If you do not specify filename, the .sbr file gets the same base name as the source file.

/Fr is deprecated; use /FR instead.


Do not change the .sbr extension. BSCMAKE requires the intermediary files to have that extension.
