    ObjModLib Compiler for pragma comment.

    If anyone out there has a compiler capable of compiling code into Object Module Libraries, that can suppot the #pragma comment directive, please email me (email address in the signature). I have one that supports the directive, and one that can compile Object Module Libraries, but neiher can do both.

    Also, when does the preprocessor process? If I MAKE the code, will it process then, or only when it is COMPILEd into an executable?

    If your compiler doesn't allow use of the #pragma directive then you need to get a newer or less cheap compiler. All of the most common compilers (even the free ones) allow #pragma. Of course it could very well be that you're using it wrong seeing as how #pragma is implementation dependent and behaves differently on different machines and compilers often interpret the same #pragma differently.

    This alone is a good reason not to use it because it is not portable. Its a last resort when you have tried everything else.

    The preprocessor takes effect upon compilation. It's the first phase of building to be specific.

    The compiler that could make ObjModLib supported some of the #pragma directives, but no mention of the ones I needed to use except for startup and exit. The other compiler is just crap for making libraries. The first is Borland Turbo C++ for 3.0 for Dos, and the latter is 4.5 for Windows. The early borland compilers were crap, I like the new ones. Unfortunately, I'm a recent immigrant to the U.S., so I can't afford to get a new compiler that's decent, because I can't get a job (under 18, it's a confusing Visa thing. I'll try it out, I just wanted to be assured there was a way to do it.
