            Bug ID: 17239
           Summary: clang-cl: /link option in @response file should only
                    consume args until end of current line
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: Driver
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

The '/link' command-line option takes the following arguments on the
command-line and passes them to the linker.

To be compatible with cl.exe, when /link occurs in a response file, it should
only capture arguments until the _end of the current line in that file_ -- not
until the end of the entire expanded command-line as clang-cl currently does.

This occurs in the wild in ninja files generated by cmake on windows. It will
generate a response file like

  foo.obj /link bar.lib baz.lib

And then invoke cl.exe:

  cl.exe <somecompilerflags> @foo.rsp /link <morelinkerflags>

When run with clang-cl, this results in the linker complaining about the second
/link argument, since we've just passed along everything since we saw the first
/link in the response file.

I found this mentioned here:

Filing this mostly to keep track of it, probably not very high priority right
