       scidisasm - Disassembles all script resources into .script files

       sciunpack - A tool for unpacking and converting SCI resource data


       FreeSCI  is a portable interpreter for SCI games, such as the Space Quest series (starting
       with SQ3) or Leisure Suit Larry (2 and sequels).

       This man page describes the tools that come  with  FreeSCI.  The  main  executable  (which
       you're probably interesed in if you want to play SCI games) is described in sciv(6).


       The  scidisasm  program  disassembles  all  script  resources in SCI resource files in the
       current directory into .script files.

       It takes five optional command line switches: --version  prints  the  version  number  and
       exists;  --help  displays  a short help message and exists; --hexdump hex dumps all script
       resources; --verbose  prints  additional  disassembly  information;  --opcode-size  prints
       opcode size postfixes.


       sciunpack is a tool  for  unpacking, printing,  and  converting SCI resource data

       Usage: sciunpack [operation] [options] <resource.number>

       Alternatively, the resource type and number can be specified as two seperate options.

       Available  resources  are:  view,  pic,  script, text, sound, memory, vocab, font, cursor,
       patch, bitmap, palette, cdaudio, audio, sync, sync, message, map, heap.

       If * is specified instead of <number>, all resources of given type will be unpacked.

       sciunpack supports the following operations:

       --unpack, -U
              This is the default action; it unpacks the specified resource.

       --list, -L
              Lists all available resources.

       --words, -W
              Prints all vocabulary words understood by the parser. See

       --objects, -O
              Outputs the full object hierarchy

       --vocab, -V
              This operation goes through several relevant 'vocab'  resources,  interprets  their
              contents,  and  prints  them  sequentially. First, all selector (variable/function)
              names are print, then all opcodes, followed by the names of all  kernel  functions,
              and finally the class ID/script lookup table.

              Prints the version number.

       --help, -h
              Displays a short help message.

       Also, there are several options available:

       --verbose, -v
              Enables additional output.

       --convert, -c
              Forces  sound  resources  to  be  converted  to General MIDI on some platforms, and
              script resources to be dissected.

       --output-file <file>, -o<file>
              Selects output file file.

       --gamedir <dir>, -d<dir>
              Read game resources from dir.

              Forces the SCI header to be written (default).

              Prevents the two SCI header bytes from being.  written

              Sorts in alphabetical order when listing words (-W)

              Sorts by group IDs when listing words (-W)

       As a default, 'resource.number' is the output filename, unless conversion is enabled (-c).
       With conversion, a few resource types are treated specially:

       -      sound  resources:  will be converted to General MIDI, stored in <number>.midi (this
              only works on GNU libc systems)

       -      script resources: will be dissected and stored in <number>.script


       The scriptdump tool can be used to disassemble all selector methods  into   SCI  assembly.
       It takes no command line options and reads the resource files from the current directory.


       This tool can be used to display  kernel function and selector names. It is obsolete.
