Linking in a Resource File

Question:
I am creating a Windows app using CC++. I have been using a shareware C compiler and a shareware resource compiler. I have compiled my .rc file into a .res file, but now I need to link it with my .cpp file. I can’t seem to make my program do this. Can most programs do this, and how do I do this?

Answer:
In Visual C++, you simply include the resource file as part of your project, and Visual C++ sees that it gets compiled and linked into the output file.

If your compiler does not support this, you must tell your linker to include the .res file. Assuming your linker is capable of doing this, the precise commands depend on the linker you are using.
