Could you just elaborate on this a little bit??
I mean, what is the spec file used for??
This file contains the defined macros like -A(__i386__) -D__MSDOS__ etc.

If it is built into the compiler then how do you find out about them??
One option is -v, but this is specific to GNU C compilers.
What about other compilers like Watcom, Borland??

Pls. try to reply as comprehensively as possible.

One more question - in no relation with this topic.
How can I view & post messages offline??
I generally do it through Google groups.
But it is cumbersome.
Is there any free Usenet Server which supports offline browsing??
