       reswrap - wrap icon resources into C code


       reswrap [options] [-o[a] outfile] files...


       Reswrap  is  a  tool  to turn images, text, and other resource files into C++ data arrays.
       This allows various binary resources to be embedded in the source code, and compiled  into
       an application.

       In  development  of  graphical applications with FOX, it is used to embed icons and images
       for the user interface into the executable and eliminate the need to  distribute  separate
       icon and image files.

       Reswrap  is  typically invoked as a part of the build process to generate C++ source files
       from a collection of icons and images and other binary resources.

       By default reswrap will interpret the files listed as a stream of  raw  bytes  and  output
       them as an initialized data array to stdout.


       -o[a] outfile
              Write  the  result  into the file outfile instead of writing to stdout. With -o the
              outfile will be overwritten with the data from the input.  With the -oa option, the
              resulting  code is appended to the output file, allowing multiple input files to be
              placed into one single source file.

       -h     Print a short usage message.

       -v     Just print out the version number and license information.

       -d     Write data as decimal numbers instead of using the default hexadecimal numbers.

       -m     Read files with MS-DOS mode (default is binary).  This replaces  "\r\n"  with  "\n"
              when reading the resource file.

       -x     Write data as hexadecimal numbers (default).

       -t[a]  Write  data  as  a  text string, with each byte represented as a hexadecimal excape
              sequence, as in "\x33".

              Note that the C++ compiler appends a nul-character at the end of the  text  string,
              thus making the data array one character longer than the file.

              With  the  a option, printable ascii characters are passed unescaped, while special
              characters like tabs and newlines are given the usual escape codes.

       -e     Places the storage modifier extern in front of the data array,  ensuring  that  the
              data  array  can  be  linked  with  other  compilation  units.   Normally, constant
              declarations are not visible in other compilation units.

       -i     Instead of generating an array definition only write a declaration,  which  can  be
              included as a header file.

       -k     This  option  causes reswrap to keep the file extension, replacing the "."  with an
              underscore "_".  Usage of this option is recommended  as  it  reduces  errors  when
              using the data arrays.

       -s     This  option  suppresses comments inserted by reswrap to indicate the original file
              name from which the data statement was generated.

       -p prefix
              Prepend the given prefix in front of the name of the resource; this may be used  to
              generate class names or namespace names in front of symbols.

       -n namespace
              Generate  all  declarations  inside  the  given C++ namespace declaration.  Using a
              namespace may be used to ensure that declarations are only  accessible  within  the
              given scope, and thus won't clash with symbols.

       -c cols
              Writes cols columns instead of the default number of columns in the data statements
              generated by reswrap.  The default number of columns for decimal and  hex  printout
              is 16 characters; the default for text string printout is 80 characters.

       -u     Force output as unsigned chars in text mode.

       -z     Output  the  size  of  the  resource  in the declaration of a resource-array.  This
              allows the C++ sizeof() operator to return the correct size of  the  resource  even
              for  external  declarations.  Note that in text mode, (-t option), an extra byte is
              added to the size for the end of string character.

       -r name
              Instead of using a resource name based on the filename,  reswrap  substitutes  name
              for  the  resource  name  used  in  the declaration or definition for the following
              resource file.  This is useful if the filename can not be used  as  an  identifier,
              for example if the filename is a reserved word in C or C++, like "while".


       When  using the text string mode, please remember the C compiler appends one nul-character
       after the string, making the data array one element longer than the resource file.
