Yes, it does!
It's a wonder that the committee didn't insist long ago that there be a
directive in the language which would pass a name(file?) to the linker for
processing. It's not like we haven't been fighting this problem since the
late 1970s and it's still a compiler specific thing. Kinda makes you
wonder exactly what things the committee deems important, and why (we STILL
don't have #pragma once as a "standard" requirement).
