WINDMC(1)		     GNU Development Tools		     WINDMC(1)

       windmc - generates Windows message resources.

       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

       "h" A C header file containing the message definitions.

	   A resource file compilable by the windres tool.

	   One or more binary files containing the resource data for a
	   specific message language.

	   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.

	   Specifies that the input file specified is ANSI. This is the
	   default behaviour.

	   Specifies that messages in the output "bin" files should be in ANSI

	   Specifies that "bin" filenames should have to be prefixed by the
	   basename of the source file.

	   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.

	   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.

	   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.

	   Terminate message text in "bin" files by zero. By default they are
	   terminated by CR/LF.

	   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.

	   Specifies that the input file is UTF16.

	   Specifies that messages in the output "bin" file should be in UTF16
	   format. This is the default behaviour.

	   Enable verbose mode.

	   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

	   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

	   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.
