11.8 --bestdebug, --no_bestdebug
Selects between linking for smallest code and data size or for best debug illusion.
Input objects might contain common data (COMDAT) groups, but these might not be identical across all input objects because of differences such as objects compiled with different optimization levels.
--bestdebug to select COMDAT groups with the best debug view. Be aware
that the code and data of the final image might not be the same when building with or
The default is
--no_bestdebug. This ensures that the code and data of the
final image are the same regardless of whether you compile for debug or not. The smallest
COMDAT groups are selected when linking, at the expense of a possibly slightly poorer debug
For two objects compiled with different optimization levels:
