What is CCres ?

CCres converts RISC OS Toolbox Resource (filetype &FAE) and Wimp Template files (filetype &FEC) to and from text format acting as a compile and decompiler for those formats. The text format uses a simple C-like layout based on the equivalent OSLib header definitions.

There is a command line CCres version as well a regular Wimp based application using drag'n'drop. Here are just a few possible uses:-

  • Gadget/Icon renumbering
  • Add or review interactive help
  • Simplifies language translation
  • File compare of text format Resource and Template files gives useful output !
  • Textual version can be stored in in source control systems like CVS or Subversion for easy diff'ing and binary version can be compiled during product building.

Author

Dave Appleby wrote all the code up to v1.08 (included). Versions after that (v1.09 and later) are maintained by John Tytgat.
