    At compile time, yes, using "-Dmacroname" where 'macroname' is the name of what you want to define. From the command line:

    "myprog myarg myarg myarg"

    No.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    You can define anything you want on the borland bcc32 compiler command line using the -D flag.

    Example:

    Source:

    #ifdef __DEBUG__
    // some code
    #endif

    You can compile it using -D__DEBUG__ to compile the conditionally defined code.
    1 rule of the Samurai Code: if you have nothing to say, don't say anything at all!
