command line build in visual studio 6.0

Hi, I'm using "programmer studio" and visual studio 6 . For the configuration of "programmer studio" I have to give the command line for building and compiling a project with the vc6-compiler. I know that the compilation can be done using "cl [ option... ] filename... [ /link linkoption... ]", but I don't know how to build an exe using the command line (I did a "cl /help", which gives all the command line options, but there is no build available , apparently).

Does anyone knows the "command line" for building a win 32 without MFC application ??
Thanks

msdev.exe is the program which may run both in IDE mode and in console mode. To see all msdev command line parameters, open DOS window and type:

msdev.exe /?

Usage:
  MSDEV [myprj.dsp|mywksp.dsw]  - load project/workspace

does this means that it is inpossible to build just a cpp file WITHOUT making project or workspace files ?? (since programmer studio doesn't support those files) ???

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

You run the cl command with "/link <link options>" and it will build an executable.  use the "/OUT:filename" option to name the executable.  You'll also need to set various compiler and linker options to choose C-runtime libraries and create debug info, etc.  It can be tricky to get the correct settings if you are not familiar with command line builds.

You can also do a two-step build.  If you use the "/c" option to run the "cl" command, it will compile only.  You have to build the executable by running another "cl" command or the linker directly.

Actually the executable will be built unless you use the "/c" option.  You only need the "/link <link options" option to use non-default link options.
