It wouldn't be that complicated. You'd probably do it the same way you
pass the list of object files to the linker.
No, because the linker ALWAYS receives ALL the objects files. The rule
typically looks like this
$(LINK) $^ -o $@
If you would do the same with the compiler, you would *always* compile
*all* source files. Instead, compiler rules typically look something
$(CC) -c $< -o $@
This will invoke "cl -c foo.c -o foo.o", once for each source file which
is out of date. I cannot see how the /MP option allows cl to
parallellize over all the source files it should compile.
This is getting too off-topic for CDT, so I'll stop here. Sorry if I'm
not able to make myself clear.
