WINDMC(1)		     GNU Development Tools		     WINDMC(1)

NAME
       windmc -	generates Windows message resources

SYNOPSIS
       windmc [options]	input-file

DESCRIPTION
       windmc reads message definitions	from an	input file (.mc) and translate
       them into a set of output files.	 The output files may be of four
       kinds:

       "h" A C header file containing the message definitions.

       "rc"
	   A resource file compilable by the windres tool.

       "bin"
	   One or more binary files containing the resource data for a
	   specific message language.

       "dbg"
	   A C include file that maps message id's to their symbolic name.

       The exact description of	these different	formats	is available in
       documentation from Microsoft.

       When windmc converts from the "mc" format to the	"bin" format, "rc",
       "h", and	optional "dbg" it is acting like the Windows Message Compiler.

OPTIONS
       -a
       --ascii_in
	   Specifies that the input file specified is ASCII. This is the
	   default behaviour.

       -A
       --ascii_out
	   Specifies that messages in the output "bin" files should be in
	   ASCII format.

       -b
       --binprefix
	   Specifies that "bin"	filenames should have to be prefixed by	the
	   basename of the source file.

       -c
       --customflag
	   Sets	the customer bit in all	message	id's.

       -C codepage
       --codepage_in codepage
	   Sets	the default codepage to	be used	to convert input file to
	   UTF16. The default is ocdepage 1252.

       -d
       --decimal_values
	   Outputs the constants in the	header file in decimal.	Default	is
	   using hexadecimal output.

       -e ext
       --extension ext
	   The extension for the header	file. The default is .h	extension.

       -F target
       --target	target
	   Specify the BFD format to use for a bin file	as output.  This is a
	   BFD target name; you	can use	the --help option to see a list	of
	   supported targets.  Normally	windmc will use	the default format,
	   which is the	first one listed by the	--help option.

       -h path
       --headerdir path
	   The target directory	of the generated header	file. The default is
	   the current directory.

       -H
       --help
	   Displays a list of command-line options and then exits.

       -m characters
       --maxlength characters
	   Instructs windmc to generate	a warning if the length	of any message
	   exceeds the number specified.

       -n
       --nullterminate
	   Terminate message text in "bin" files by zero. By default they are
	   terminated by CR/LF.

       -o
       --hresult_use
	   Not yet implemented.	Instructs "windmc" to generate an OLE2 header
	   file, using HRESULT definitions. Status codes are used if the flag
	   is not specified.

       -O codepage
       --codepage_out codepage
	   Sets	the default codepage to	be used	to output text files. The
	   default is ocdepage 1252.

       -r path
       --rcdir path
	   The target directory	for the	generated "rc" script and the
	   generated "bin" files that the resource compiler script includes.
	   The default is the current directory.

       -u
       --unicode_in
	   Specifies that the input file is UTF16.

       -U
       --unicode_out
	   Specifies that messages in the output "bin" file should be in UTF16
	   format. This	is the default behaviour.

       -v
       --verbose
	   Enable verbose mode.

       -V
       --version
	   Prints the version number for windmc.

       -x path
       --xdgb path
	   The path of the "dbg" C include file	that maps message id's to the
	   symbolic name. No such file is generated without specifying the
	   switch.

       @file
	   Read	command-line options from file.	 The options read are inserted
	   in place of the original @file option.  If file does	not exist, or
	   cannot be read, then	the option will	be treated literally, and not
	   removed.

	   Options in file are separated by whitespace.	 A whitespace
	   character may be included in	an option by surrounding the entire
	   option in either single or double quotes.  Any character (including
	   a backslash)	may be included	by prefixing the character to be
	   included with a backslash.  The file	may itself contain additional
	   @file options; any such options will	be processed recursively.
