       glib-compile-resources -	GLib resource compiler

       glib-compile-resources [OPTION...] {FILE}

       glib-compile-resources reads the	resource description from FILE and the
       files that it references	and creates a binary resource bundle that is
       suitable	for use	with the GResource API.	The resulting bundle is	then
       written out as-is, or as	C source for linking into an application.

       The XML resource	files normally have the	filename extension
       .gresource.xml. For a detailed description of the XML file format, see
       the GResource documentation.

       -h, --help
	   Print help and exit

	   Print program version and exit

	   Store the compiled resources	in the file TARGET. If not specified a
	   filename based on the FILE basename is used.

	   The files referenced	in FILE	are loaded from	this directory.	If not
	   specified, the current directory is used.

	   Write the output file in the	format selected	for by its filename

	       C source

	       C header

	       resource	bundle

	   Instead of a	writing	the resource bundle in binary form create a C
	   source file that contains the resource bundle. This can then	be
	   compiled into an application	for easy access.

	   Generate a header file for use with C code generated	by

	   Prints the list of files that the resource bundle references	to
	   standard output. This can be	used to	track dependencies in the
	   build system. For example, the following make rule would mark
	   test.gresource as depending on all the files	that
	   test.gresource.xml includes,	so that	is is automatically rebuilt if
	   any of them change:

	       test.gresource: test.gresource.xml $(shell $(GLIB_COMPILE_RESOURCES) --generate-dependencies test.gresource.xml)

	   Note	that this may or may not be portable to	non-GNU	make.

	   Also	see --dependency-file.

	   Specify the prefix used for the C identifiers in the	code generated
	   by --generate-source	and --generate-header.

	   By default code generated by	--generate-source uses automatic
	   initialization of the resource. This	works on most systems by using
	   the compiler	support	for constructors. However, some	(uncommon)
	   compilers may not support this, you can then	specify
	   --manual-register, which will generate custom register and
	   unregister functions	that your code can manually call at
	   initialization and uninitialization time.

	   By default code generated by	--generate-source declares all
	   initialization functions as extern. So they are exported unless
	   this	is prevented by	a link script or other means. Since libraries
	   usually want	to use the functions only internally it	can be more
	   useful to declare them as G_GNUC_INTERNAL which is what --internal

	   Write dependencies in the same style	as gcc -M -MF to the given
	   file. If FILE is -, the dependencies	are written to the standard
	   output. Unlike --generate-dependencies, this	option can be combined
	   with	other --generate options to generate dependencies as a
	   side-effect of generating sources.

	   When	creating a dependency file with	--dependency-file include
	   phony targets in the	same style as gcc -MP. This would typically be
	   used	with make.

	   The full path to the	xmllint	executable. This is used to preprocess
	   resources with the xml-stripblanks preprocessing option. If this
	   environment variable	is not set, xmllint is searched	in the PATH.

	   The full path to the	gdk-pixbuf-pixdata executable. This is used to
	   preprocess resources	with the to-pixdata preprocessing option. If
	   this	environment variable is	not set, gdk-pixbuf-pixdata is
	   searched in the PATH.
