    Optimizing the linker in msvc

    I'm sorry if my question don't fit here, I didn't find a proper place to ask.

    When I build from the command line a library with msvc 2010 (the one that comes with psdk win7 & .Net 4.0) I can see more files created:
    Code:
    *.manifest
    *.ilk
    *.pdb
    *.exp
    *.lib
    *.dll
    I managed to avoid the ilk and manifest, passing to the link this flags:
    Code:
    /MANIFEST:NO /INCREMENTAL:NO
    my question is..how to avoid the exp file creation? I want to see the library (lib) and the dynamic lib (dll)

    Thanks for the input

    What do you mean "optimise"?

    I see a bunch of temporary files used for one purpose or another.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
