<ilasm>

[This is preliminary documentation and subject to change.]

Compiles ILASM programs.

Parameters

Attribute Type Description Required
output file Specifies the name of the output file created by the compiler. True
target string Specifies which output type should be generated. True
alignment int Instructs the compiler to set the FileAlignment value in the PE header. False
base int Instructs the compiler to set the ImageBase value in the PE header. False
clock bool Specifies whether or not the compiler should measure and report the compilation times. False
debug bool Specifies whether or not the compiler should generate debug information. False
error bool Specifies whether or not the compiler should attempt to create a PE file even if compilation errors have been reported. False
flags int Instructs the compiler to set the Flags value in the CLR header. False
keyfile file Instructs the compiler to generate a strong signature of the PE file. False
keysource string Instructs the compiler to generate a strong signature of the PE file. False
listing bool Specifies whether or not the compiler should type a formatted listing of the compilation result. False
rebuild bool Instructs NAnt to recompile the output file regardless of the file timestamps. False
resourcefile file Instructs the compiler to link the specified unmanaged resource file into the resulting PE file. False
subsystem int Instructs the compiler to set the Subsystem value in the PE header. False
failonerror bool Determines if task failure stops the build, or is just reported. The default is true. False
if bool If true then the task will be executed; otherwise, skipped. The default is true. False
timeout int The maximum amount of time the application is allowed to execute, expressed in milliseconds. Defaults to no time-out. False
unless bool Opposite of if. If false then the task will be executed; otherwise, skipped. The default is false. False
verbose bool Determines whether the task should report detailed build log messages. The default is false. False

Framework-configurable parameters

Attribute Type Description Required
exename string The name of the executable that should be used to launch the external program. False
managed ManagedExecution Specifies whether the external program should be treated as a managed application, possibly forcing it to be executed under the currently targeted version of the CLR. False
useruntimeengine bool Deprecated. Specifies whether the external program is a managed application which should be executed using a runtime engine, if configured. The default is false. False

Nested Elements:

<sources>

Specifies the set of source files to compile.

</sources>

<arg>

The command-line arguments for the external program.

Represents a command-line argument.

When passed to an external application, the argument will be quoted when appropriate. This does not apply to the line parameter, which is always passed as is.

Parameters

AttributeTypeDescriptionRequired
dirdirectory The value for a directory-based command-line argument; will be replaced with the absolute path of the directory. False
filefile The name of a file as a single command-line argument; will be replaced with the absolute filename of the file. False
ifbool Indicates if the argument should be passed to the external program. If true then the argument will be passed; otherwise, skipped. The default is true. False
linestring List of command-line arguments; will be passed to the executable as is. False
path<path> The value for a PATH-like command-line argument; you can use : or ; as path separators and NAnt will convert it to the platform's local conventions, while resolving references to environment variables. False
unlessbool Indicates if the argument should not be passed to the external program. If false then the argument will be passed; otherwise, skipped. The default is false. False
valuestring A single command-line argument; can contain space characters. False

Nested Elements:

<path>

Sets a single command-line argument and treats it like a PATH - ensures the right separator for the local platform is used.

</path>
