Go Up to Using ILINK32 and ILINK64 on the Command Line

Application code

// hello.cpp
int main()
  std::string s("Hello world");
  std::cout << s;


You can compile this source using:

>"C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\22.0\bin\bcc64.exe" -c hello.cpp			

This command creates the Object(.0) file needed for linking.


Then link the .a and .o files, and create the 64-bit Windows executable file for the HelloWorld App using the following command:

> "C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\22.0\bin\ilink64" -j"C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\22.0lib\win64\release" -Gn c0x64 Hello.o, Hello.exe,, import64.a cw64mt.a, ,

You can also let the compiler invoke the linker, using the following command:

> "C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\22.0\bin\bcc64.exe" hello.o

Now run Hello.exe, and "Hello world" prints on the screen.
