c++.dos.32-bits - cl.exe fails

	I am running CPAN, which wants to compile some C stuff. Here:

c:\>cpan install Date::Calc

	It calls nmake which alls cl.exe. I am using Microsoft's nmake obtained 
from ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/Softlib/MSLFILES/nmake15.exe and Digital 
mars' cl.exe.

	At one point I get this error:


         cl -c    -nologo -GF -W3 -MD -Zi -DNDEBUG -O1 -DWIN32 
-D_CONSOLE -DNO_ST

-DNDEBUG -O1
  -DVERSION=\"6.4\"  -DXS_VERSION=\"6.4\"  "-IC:\Perl\lib\CORE" 
BitVector.c
Error: unrecognized flag '-GF'
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe' : return code '0x1'
Stop.
   C:\bin\nmake.EXE  -- NOT OK



	Is there a way to have cl.exe support the -GF flag?

	Thanks,

What does the -GF flag do?

"enable read-only string pooling" I think DMC can safely ignore the flag. -- Just another homepage: http://damb.dk But it's mine - Bertel
