    They are just scripts that various dev tool support.....

    With MSVC++ the tool is a command line app called NMAKE.exe that reads these scripts and uses the info to compile all the modules, resources and other whatnots and then links it all...

    I think the script itself is compiler dependant....so look what your tool provides and lookup the documentation
