How can I make Visual Studio's build be very verbose?


I need to get a hold of every flag, every switch used in the build process by the Visual Studio binaries. I tried to obtain a verbose output by using vcbuild, but I wasn't able.

What do I have to do to see everything performed by Visual Studio for me? It's not necessary to obtain the output in the build window. Anywhere would be fine.
