The mode parameter indicates the compilation mode, which can be one of the following:


Standard build mode


Optimize and link indirectly


Optimize and link directly

The standard mode produces the smallest output file and is suitable for programs consisting of a single file.

The optimization options result in more efficient compiled files, which becomes important as your programs grow in size and complexity. The basic functions of optimization are as follows:

The VLISP project management feature allows you to tailor the optimization options to the specific needs of your application. See to learn more about choosing optimization options.
