sure, but the people who made the compiler call it GCC
The people that made MSVC call it MSVC

regardless of what the command lines are or how they are structured. The only reason this tangent happened is because someone argued that because cl.exe is called cl.exe that has to do with what the compiler is named. I'd argue it doesn't.
