Compile Options

The options shown here are valid for the "compile" command, you may need to alter these options to work around cabinet file limitations.

Please see the "options for commands" section of the manual for generic configuration details on how these can be altered:

<__$ExampleFile INDENT=0 FILE="Compile.MMH" Fragment="[Options4Doco]" STATE="REMEMBER">
