How to get precompiled listing ?

While compiling an application, I like to get a precompiled output where the source code is expanded with all the header files. Is thre some setting to get this using VC++1.52 or BC++4.52 ??

For VC++, the /P or /E option should work, e.g.

cl file.c /P (will result in a listing file named 'file.i')


cl file.c /E (will output to stdout)
For BC you can use utility
cpp32.exe (or Cpp.exe) :
cpp32.exe mytext.cpp
Result file(with precompiled text) will be mytext.i
