Go Up to Compiling Packages


Building a C++ static package library (.lib) requires a set of C++ object files that are different from the C++ object files used to build the dynamic library (.bpl).

When you perform a build or make command, the C++ compiler produces two sets of C++ object files as follows:

  • The C++ object files for the dynamic library (.dll or .bpl) are built with:
    • BCC32 -D_RTLDLL;USEPACKAGES or:
    • DCC32 -JPHNE (Generate C++ object file, C++ header file, in namespace, export all)
  • The C++ object files for the static library (.lib) are built with:
    • BCC32 -U_RTLDLL;USEPACKAGES or:
    • DCC32 -JPHN (Generate C++ object file, C++ header file, in namespace)
  • For both types of library, the TLIB Library Manager creates the actual library, in the \bpilib directory.

The C++ object files for the dynamic library (.bpl) are output into your project directory.

The C++ object files for the static library (.lib) are output into a subdirectory created in your project directory, typically the \Debug\Win32\staticobjs directory.
