-?            Prints this help text.
-m            The full IIS metabase path of the application. This switch cannot
              be combined with the -v or -p switches.
-v            The virtual path of the application to be compiled (e.g.
              "/MyApp"). If -p is specified, the physical path is used to
              locate the application. Otherwise, the IIS metabase is used, and
              the application is assumed to be in the default site (under
              "/LM/W3SVC/1/Root"). This switch cannot be combined with the -m
-p            The physical path of the application to be compiled. If -p is
              missing, the IIS metabase is used to locate the app. This switch
              must be combined with -v.
-u            If specified, the precompiled application is updatable.
-f            Overwrites the target directory if it already exists. Existing
              contents are lost.
-d            If specified, the debug information is emitted during
targetDir     The physical path to which the application is compiled. If not
              specified, the application is precompiled in-place.
-c            If specified, the precompiled application is fully rebuilt. Any
              previously compiled components will be re-compiled. This option
              is always enabled when targetDir is specified.
-x            The virtual path of a directory that should be excluded from
              precompilation. This switch can be used multiple times.
-keyfile      The physical path to the strong name key file.
-keycontainer Specifies a strong name key container.
-aptca        If specified, the strong-name assembly will allow partially
              trusted callers.
-delaysign    If specified, the assembly is not fully signed when created. 
-fixednames   If specified, the compiled assemblies will be given fixed names.
-nologo       Suppress compiler copyright message.
-errorstack   Shows extra debugging information that can help debug certain


The following two commands are equivalent, and rely on the IIS metabase. The
compiled application is deployed to c:\MyTarget:
    aspnet_compiler -m /LM/W3SVC/1/Root/MyApp c:\MyTarget
    aspnet_compiler -v /MyApp c:\MyTarget

The following command compiles the application /MyApp in-place. The effect is
that no more compilations will be needed when HTTP requests are sent to it:
    aspnet_compiler -v /MyApp

The following command does *not* rely on the IIS metabase, as it explicitly
specifies the physical source directory of the application:
    aspnet_compiler -v /MyApp -p c:\myapp c:\MyTarget
