Command Line Syntax

The mofinclude utility can be invoked by typing mofinclude at the command prompt.

The command line syntax for the mofinclude utility is included below.

C:> cd \Program Files\ws\sdk\bin
C:> mofinclude -h
MOFInclude [options] dir out
Copyright (c) 2007 WS, Inc.
-h Display this usage statement
-v Display the version information
-cf Copyright File
-l locale pragma
-qf Qualifier Include Files
dir Directory
out Output File
mofinclude -cf my.copyright -l en_US -qf qualifiers.mof,qualifiers_optional.mof . cim.mof


  • The contents of the Copyright File specified by the -cf option are inserted at the beginning of the generated file.
  • The -l argument is used to generate #pragma locale statement; e.g. #program locale (“en_US”).
  • The -qf argument list is used to generate #pragma include statements for the qualifiers to be used. For example, -qf qualifiers.mof generates #pragma include (“qualifiers.mof”).
  • mofinclude examines every file in the specified directory that has a .mof extension, including all subdirectories.
  • mofinclude generates an output file containing a list of #pragma include statements. The list is properly ordered so that it can be used to compile the set of MOF files it has examined.
