       glib-compile-resources - GLib resource compiler

       glib-compile-resources [OPTION...] {FILE}

       glib-compile-resources reads the resource description from FILE and the
       files that it references and creates a binary resource bundle that is
       suitable for use with the GResource API. The resulting bundle is then
       written out as-is, or as C source for linking into an application.

       The XML resource files normally have the filename extension
       .gresource.xml. For a detailed description of the XML file format, see
       the GResource documentation.

       -h, --help
	   Print help and exit

	   Store the compiled resources in the file TARGET. If not specified a
	   filename based on the FILE basename is used.

	   The files referenced in FILE are loaded from this directory. If not
	   specified, the current directory is used.

	   Write the output file in the format selected for by its filename

	       C source

	       C header

	       resource bundle

	   Instead of a writing the resource bundle in binary form create a C
	   source file that contains the resource bundle. This can then be
	   compiled into an application for easy access.

	   Generate a header file for use with C code generated by

	   Prints the list of files that the resource bundle references to
	   standard output. This can be used to track dependencies in the
	   build system. For example, the following make rule would mark
	   test.gresource as depending on all the files that
	   test.gresource.xml includes, so that is is automatically rebuilt if
	   any of them change:

	       test.gresource: test.gresource.xml $(shell $(GLIB_COMPILE_RESOURCES) --generate-dependencies test.gresource.xml)

	   Note that this may or may not be portable to non-GNU make.

	   Specify the prefix used for the C identifiers in the code generated
	   by --generate-source and --generate-header.

	   By default code generated by --generate-source uses automatic
	   initialization of the resource. This works on most systems by using
	   the compiler support for constructors. However, some (uncommon)
	   compilers may not support this, you can then specify
	   --manual-register, which will generate custom register and
	   unregister functions that your code can manually call at
	   initialization and uninitialization time.

	   By default code generated by --generate-source declares all
	   initialization functions as extern. So they are exported unless
	   this is prevented by a link script or other means. Since libraries
	   usually want to use the functions only internally it can be more
	   useful to declare them as G_GNUC_INTERNAL which is what --internal

	   The full path to the xmllint executable. This is used to preprocess
	   resources with the xml-stripblanks preprocessing option. If this
	   environment variable is not set, xmllint is searched in the PATH.

	   The full path to the gdk-pixbuf-pixdata executable. This is used to
	   preprocess resources with the to-pixdata preprocessing option. If
	   this environment variable is not set, gdk-pixbuf-pixdata is
	   searched in the PATH.
