I'm trying to use a compiler option defined in the System Manual
-Os stringFile - capture strings from all compiled source files into a text file called stringFile. Any existing file of the same name will be overwritten by the new string file. If this option is used, all of the strings in the program are captured to the given file, one string per line, with the enclosing quote marks removed. This option lets you pull out all of the text in a program so that you can run it through a spell checker, for example.
I'm doing this through the Workbench, in the Build -> Settings... window, in the Advanced tab under "additional command-line options". But compiling with this only produces an empty file (0 bytes in size) named whatever you called stringFile
. The command shows up in the t3make report under the Debug Log, so it's being executed, but not in the way I expect. Other compiler options, such as -help
, seem to work fine.
I might just be misinterpreting how this particular option works; either way, I would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.
