windres - manipulate Windows resources.
windres [options] [input-file] [output-file]
windres reads resources from an input file and copies them into an output file. Either
file may be in one of three formats:
A text format read by the Resource Compiler.
A binary format generated by the Resource Compiler.
A COFF object or executable.
The exact description of these different formats is available in documentation from
When windres converts from the "rc" format to the "res" format, it is acting like the
Windows Resource Compiler. When windres converts from the "res" format to the "coff"
format, it is acting like the Windows "CVTRES" program.
When windres generates an "rc" file, the output is similar but not identical to the format
expected for the input. When an input "rc" file refers to an external filename, an output
"rc" file will instead include the file contents.
If the input or output format is not specified, windres will guess based on the file name,
or, for the input file, the file contents. A file with an extension of .rc will be
treated as an "rc" file, a file with an extension of .res will be treated as a "res" file,
and a file with an extension of .o or .exe will be treated as a "coff" file.
If no output file is specified, windres will print the resources in "rc" format to
The normal use is for you to write an "rc" file, use windres to convert it to a COFF
object file, and then link the COFF file into your application. This will make the
resources described in the "rc" file available to Windows.
The name of the input file. If this option is not used, then windres will use the
first non-option argument as the input file name. If there are no non-option
arguments, then windres will read from standard input. windres can not read a COFF
file from standard input.
The name of the output file. If this option is not used, then windres will use the
first non-option argument, after any used for the input file name, as the output file
name. If there is no non-option argument, then windres will write to standard output.
windres can not write a COFF file to standard output. Note, for compatability with rc
the option -fo is also accepted, but its use is not recommended.
The input format to read. format may be res, rc, or coff. If no input format is
specified, windres will guess, as described above.
The output format to generate. format may be res, rc, or coff. If no output format
is specified, windres will guess, as described above.
Specify the BFD format to use for a COFF file as input or output. This is a BFD
target name; you can use the --help option to see a list of supported targets.
Normally windres will use the default format, which is the first one listed by the
When windres reads an "rc" file, it runs it through the C preprocessor first. This
option may be used to specify the preprocessor to use, including any leading
arguments. The default preprocessor argument is "gcc -E -xc-header -DRC_INVOKED".
Specify an include directory to use when reading an "rc" file. windres will pass this
to the preprocessor as an -I option. windres will also search this directory when
looking for files named in the "rc" file. If the argument passed to this command
matches any of the supported formats (as descrived in the -J option), it will issue a
deprecation warning, and behave just like the -J option. New programs should not use
this behaviour. If a directory happens to match a format, simple prefix it with ./ to
disable the backward compatibility.
Specify a -D option to pass to the preprocessor when reading an "rc" file.
Specify a -U option to pass to the preprocessor when reading an "rc" file.
-r Ignored for compatibility with rc.
-v Enable verbose mode. This tells you what the preprocessor is if you didn't specify
Specify the default language to use when reading an "rc" file. val should be a
hexadecimal language code. The low eight bits are the language, and the high eight
bits are the sublanguage.
Use a temporary file to instead of using popen to read the output of the preprocessor.
Use this option if the popen implementation is buggy on the host (eg., certain non-
English language versions of Windows 95 and Windows 98 are known to have buggy popen
where the output will instead go the console).
Use popen, not a temporary file, to read the output of the preprocessor. This is the

Prints the version number for windres.
If windres is compiled with "YYDEBUG" defined as 1, this will turn on parser
