nRSCUtil 1.00

nRSCUtil is a new addition to NEUON's array of professional developer tools. This application facilitates the creation and editing of EPOC resource files on EPOC devices themselves, primarily of use to OPL developers.

RSC files can be use to easily create localised versions of your application without changing the actual source code, vital when an external party does the translation. Also because RSC files are normally quite small, it allows you to distribute just one SIS file that has multiple language dependant RSC files, thereby keeping distribution preparation time down.

nRSCUtil also has the useful feature of viewing already compiled RSC files, including the option to extract a RSG or token list from the file for incorporation into an application. Tokens can be exported in 3 different formats, "Program" editor OPL, ASCII opl or an ASCII C headers.

Editing resource files is done with a simple text interface and specially structured ASCII text.


Sample resource text

Name - EXPL
Lang - EN, GE
Header - OSG
Prefix - KLang

$ "Simple test resource"
& "&10000001"

&Uid "0x10000001 + 3"
$New "New…" "Neu…"
$Open { EN: "Open…" GE: "Öffnen…" }
$Tools { EN: "Tools" GE: "Tools" }
$Help { EN: "Help"
GE: "Hilfe" }

The text is then compiled into various resource files based on the languages you defined and is now ready to be used in your application with SYSTEM OPX's resource functions.

nRSCUtil supports 5 basic entry types

$ String (text)
& Long integer (long)
% Short integer (word)
# Byte (byte)
_ Floating point (double)
