NAME
       wrestool - extract resources from Microsoft Windows(R) binaries

SYNOPSIS
       wrestool [OPTIONS]... [FILE]...

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly the wrestool command.  This manual page was written for
       the Debian GNU distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

       Wrestool reads 16- or 32-bit Microsoft Windows(R)  binaries  and  lists	or  extracts  the
       resources  they	contain.  Some resources require processing before they can be written to
       files; wrestool is able to do this with icon and cursor resources.

       Filters, specified as command line options, control what resources to extract.

OPTIONS
       These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options  starting  with
       two dashes (`-').

       -x, --extract
	      Extract  resources.  (By	default,  resources  will be extracted to standard out if
	      --output was not specified.)

       -l, --list
	      Output list of resources (default).

       -t, --type=[+|-]ID
	      Resource type identifier of affected resources. If preceded with a dash (``-''), id
	      must be numeric; if preceded with a plus sign (``+''), id must be a string.

	      The  type ID may also be the name of a resource type. (If this is the case, a lead-
	      ing dash or plus sign may not be included.) A list of resource types can	be  found
	      in the ``Resource Types'' section.

       -n, --name=[+|-]ID
	      Resource	name  identifier of affected resources. Like the --type option, a leading
	      dash or plus sign controls the datatype of the id.

       -L, --language=[+|-]ID
	      Resource language identifier. Has no effect when processing 16-bit libraries.

       -a, --all
	      Perform operation on all resource (default).

       -o, --output=PATH
	      Where to place extracted resources. If ``PATH''  does  not  refer  to  an  existing
	      directory, and does not end with a slash (``/''), all output will be written to the
	      file ``PATH''. (This means that if you extract multiple resources, PATH  will  con-
	      tain the last resource only.)

       -R, --raw
	      Do  not  parse  resource contents - extract raw data. (This option will probably be
	      replaced with --format=raw in future version of icoutils.)

       -v, --verbose
	      Explain what is being done. The verbose option may be  specified	more  than  once,
	      like ``-vv'', to make wrestool even more verbose.

       --help Display a help message and exit.

       --version
	      Output version information and exit.

RESOURCE TYPES
       The  wrestool  program  recognizes  the	resource  types  listed  below.  The ids of these
       resources are always numeric and not strings.

       cursor (1)
	      A single cursor bitmap image. Read as part of group_cursor resources.

       bitmap (2)
	      A bitmap image.

       icon (3)
	      A single icon bitmap image. Read as part of group_icon resources.  This resource is
	      similar to cursor resources; cursors contain four additional bytes of hotspot coor-
	      dinates.

       menu (4)
	      Resources for menus (in popup and menubars).  Currently wrestool does  not  support
	      this resource type.

       dialog (5)
	      Definitions (widgets with locations) for dialog boxes.  Currently wrestool does not
	      support this resource type.

       string (6)
	      The string table resource,  containing  a  number  of  unicode  strings.	Currently
	      wrestool does not support this resource type.

       fontdir (7)
	      The  font directory, containing information on a number of font resources (8). Non-
	      TTF font (.FON) files are actually libraries  with  resources  in  them.	Currently
	      wrestool does not support this resource type.

       font (8)
	      A  single  font  -  the contents of a .FNT file. Read as part of fontdir resources.
	      Currently wrestool does not support this resource type.

       accelerator (9)
	      Keyboard accelerator tables.  Currently wrestool does  not  support  this  resource
	      type.

       rcdata (10)
	      Arbitrary  resource  data, user-defined. There are no restrictions to the format of
	      these resources.

       messagelist (11)
	      Not supported.

       group_cursor (12)
	      A set of cursors. With a	few  modifications  (and  with	cursor	resources),  this
	      resource can be extracted as a .CUR file.

       group_icon (14)
	      A  set of icons. With a few modifications (and with icons resources), this resource
	      can be extracted as a .ICO file.

       version (16)
	      Version information, stored as binary data. Could be  extracted  without	modifica-
	      tions, but the data is of probably little use.  Currently wrestool does not support
	      this resource type.

       dlginclude (17)
	      Not supported.

       plugplay (19)
	      Not supported.

       vxd (20)
	      Not supported.

       anicursor (21)
	      Animated cursors. Currently wrestool does not support animated cursor or icons, nor
	      does icotool.

       aniicon (22)
	      Animated	icons. I have only seen these in Windows(R) 3.x.  Currently wrestool does
	      not support animated cursor or icons, nor does icotool.

EXAMPLES
       List all resources in file `write.exe':
	 $ wrestool -l write.exe
	 --type=3 --name=1 --lang=1033 [type=icon offset=0x3120 size=752]
	 --type=3 --name=2 --lang=1033 [type=icon offset=0x3410 size=304]
	 --type=14 --name=1 --lang=1033 [type=group_icon offset=0x3540 size=34]
	 --type=16 --name=1 --lang=1033 [type=version offset=0x3564 size=808]

       List all (group-) icon resource in file `write.exe':
	 $ wrestool -l --type=group_icon write.exe
	 --type=14 --name=1 --lang=1033 [type=group_icon offset=0x3540 size=34]

       Extract all icons to current directory, naming the destination files `write.exe_T_N.ico':
	 $ wrestool -x --output=. -t14 write.exe
	 $ ls *.ico
	 write.exe_14_1.ico
