Lahey/GNU Fortran

-[n]c

Suppress Linking

Compile only. Default: -nc

GFortran option: -c

Specify -c to create object (.OBJ), and, if necessary, module (.MOD) files without invoking the linker or librarian to create an executable, dll or static library. This is especially useful in makefiles, where it is not always desirable to perform the entire build process with one invocation of the driver.
