Overview: Compilation

This section describes the Intel® C++ Compiler options that determine the compilation process and output. By default, the compiler converts source code directly to an executable file. Appropriate options allow you to control the process by directing the compiler to produce:

You can also name the output file or designate a set of options that are passed to the linker. If you specify a phase-limiting option, the compiler produces a separate output file representing the output of the last phase that completes for each primary input file.
