The switches with "*" in the default column are only  available  in  the
debug compiler.

All the old one character switches (except /B, /F, and /W)  are  in  the
switch table but are invisible.
The correspondence between the version 12B switches and the  version  13
ones is as follows:

/D = /STACK:
/F = /KILL:
/H = /HELP
/K = /KILL:
/M = /MAP
/T = /TRACE:
/Z = use new scanner even in a batch job

The following /Y values are equivalent:

The switch /W has not been implemented.
