Dereference links. what does it do?

Recommended Posts

http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/dereference

 

 

To go to an address before performing the operation. For example, in C programming, a dereferenced variable is a pointer to the variable, not the variable itself. The expression int Num; declares an integer variable named "Num." The expression *pNum = &Num; places the address of the variable Num (not its contents) into the pointer. The ampersand is the "address of" operator.

I curious, found it while looking through the settings. :D

 

Thanks

 

ImgBurn, Tools, Settings, Build Tab, Browse For File - Dereference Links:

 

30 seconds of playing shows that if you leave this unchecked and browse for a file and pick a '.lnk', it will add the .lnk file (~1k) to the iso image. Checking this option and browsing and picking the *same* .lnk file, will add the file referenced by the link. E.g add Imgburn.lnk (dereference unchecked) will add the 598 byte .lnk, add Imgburn.lnk (dereference checked), puts the 970+k exe in the iso.

 

HTH,

 

Mark
