       wmc [options] [inputfile]


       wmc  compiles  messages  from  inputfile  into  FormatMes­
       sage[AW] compatible format  encapsulated  in  a  resource­
       script  format.  wmc outputs the data either in a standard
       .bin  formatted  binary  file,  or  can  generated  inline
       resource data.

       wmc  takes  only one inputfile as argument (see BUGS). The
       inputfile normally has extension  .mc.  The  messages  are
       read  from standard input if no inputfile is given. If the
       outputfile is not specified with -o, then wmc  will  write
       the  output  to inputfile.{rc,h}.  The outputfile is named
       wmc.tab.{rc,h} if no inputfile was given.


       -B x   Set  output   byte-order   x={n[ative],   l[ittle],
              b[ig]}. Default is n[ative].

       -c     Set 'custom-bit' in message-code values.

       -d     NON-FUNCTIONAL; Use decimal values in output

       -D     Set  debug flag. This results is a parser trace and
              a lot of extra messages.

       -h     Print an informative usage message.

       -H file
              Write headerfile to file. Default is inputfile.h.

       -i     Inline messagetable(s). This option skips the  gen­
              eration  of  all  .bin  files and writes all output
              into the .rc file. This encoding is  parsable  with

       -o file
              Output to file. Default is inputfile.rc.

       -u     Assume that the inputfile is in unicode.

       -U     Write  resource  output  in  unicode formatted mes­

       -v     Show all supported codepages and languages.

       -V     Print version end exit.

       -W     Enable pedantic warnings.

       The language is the numerical language-ID or the alias set
       with  LanguageNames.  The  input-codepage  cpin  and  out­
       put-codepage  cpout  are the numerical codepage-IDs. There
       can be multiple mapping within the definition and the def­
       inition may occur more than once.


       wmc was written by Bertho A. Stultiens.


       The  message  compiler  should  be  able  to have multiple
       inputfiles and combine  them  into  one  outputfile.  This
       would  enable  the  splitting  of  languages into separate

       Unicode detection of the input is suboptimal, to  say  the
       least.  It  should  recognize  byte-order-marks  (BOM) and
       decide what to do.

       Decimal output is completely lacking. Don't  know  whether
       it should be implemented because it is a, well, non-infor­
       mative format change. It is recognized on the  commandline
       for some form of compatibility.


       wmc  is  part of the wine distribution, which is available
       through WineHQ,  the  wine  development  headquarters,  at


       wine(1), wrc(1)

Version 1.0.0             June 12, 2000                    WMC(1)
