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.
