[answered] Old 'Resource Workshop' (tool) equivalent?
« on: June 16, 2021, 02:51:16 pm »
Hello,

Under Borland Pascal 7.0 (Windows 3.1, 16 bits), there was a tool named "Resource Workshop": it allowed to see the different named resources contained in a single *.res file (icons, stringtable, ...).

Is there an equivalent tool (compilable with Lazarus or not)?

Regards.

Mainly Lazarus trunk / fpc 3.2.0 / all 32-bit on Win-10, but many more...

and many more...

Presumably these are Windows-specific? Are there equivalents for OSes using the .elf binary format?

Thanks @wp,

For information, ResourceEditor.exe works well on Linux (through Wine emulator: it's basically the equivalent of Dephi's "Image Editor"; I didn't need to test the others).

It allowed me to do what I wanted i.e. just to include the *.bmp of the same name of the component - inside a *.res - *.res named like the unit registering the component in its palette, in a visual way: not very complicated; but as usual, without the right tool...  ;)
