DOCERR: “LINK4” Should Be “ILINK”, Jan ’89 MS Systems Journal PSS ID Number: Q43599 Article last modified on 04-05-1994

5.10

MS-DOS

SUMMARY

The following information is incorrectly stated on Page 82 of the January 1989 issue (Vol. 4, No. 1) of the “Microsoft Systems Journal”. The following incorrect information appears in the first paragraph on the rightmost column of text:

… The new Microsoft incremental linker, LINK4, which can incrementally (and therefore more quickly) link object files to produce an executable for either OS/2 or DOS, is included with both Microsoft C 5.1 and MASM 5.1.

The new Microsoft incremental linker is ILINK, not LINK4. Therefore, the occurrence of “LINK4” should be replaced “ILINK”. The text should read as follows:

… The new Microsoft incremental linker, ILINK, which can incrementally (and therefore more quickly) link object files to produce an executable for either OS/2 or DOS, is included with both Microsoft C 5.1 and MASM 5.1.

LINK4 is a segmented linker and is used exclusively with the Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK). LINK4 will not produce OS/2 code, and it is not recommended for non-Windows applications. LINK4 is included only with the Microsoft Windows SDK.
