B.8.6. Pre_Post_Link group

The Pre_Post_Link group enables you to run specific commands before linking, or immediately after. You can insert OS commands, for example DOS/Windows, or UNIX shell commands, and any program on the local workstation. You can also use this group to insert $(macro_name) make commands.

If you are working in Windows, you must precede a shell command with a plus sign, for example +echo build complete.

Examine the makefile to see what macros are available for these commands.

Table B.40 describes the settings available in the Pre_Post_Link group.
