extresso man page

extresso — wrapper for wrestool and icotool

Synopsis

extresso [Options]... [FILE]...

Description

This manual page documents briefly the extresso command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

Extresso reads resource scripts, and uses wrestool to extract the listed resources and icotool to convert them (if necessary).

Options

These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-').

-o,--output=DIR
Where to place extracted files (default `.').
--format=FORMAT
Extraction format of icon resources, passed to icotool.
-b,--base=DIR
Base directory of local files in scripts. (This will be appended to “file” lines in the scripts.)
-i,--interactive
Prompt before extraction.
-v,--verbose
Explain what is being done.
--help
Display a help message and exit.
--version
Output version information and exit.

Examples

Extract all resources from shell32.dll using the resource script “win98_shell32”, assuming it is available in “/windows/windows/system/shell32.dll”, and placing output in “out/”:

$ extresso ../data/resscripts/win98_shell32 --base=/windows/windows --output=out/
$ find out/ -type f | wc -l
339
$
