Using the Silverfrost Resource Compiler
If a program uses a resource script and neither of the compiler options /LGO and
/LINK are used to compile and link the program, then the Silverfrost Resource
Compiler SRC must be used to compile the resource script. An alternative method
can also be used with FTN95 (see Resources in FTN95).
When SRC is called it creates a permanent compilation of the resource script.
With a few exceptions and a few additions, SRC uses the same resource script
syntax as the Microsoft Resource Compiler RC. However, most ClearWin+
programmers will find that they only use the following kinds of resources:
Once a resource script has be written, it should be stored in a file with the
.RC extension. The resource can then be compiled with a call to SRC of the
This command takes the file resource.rc as input and produces an object
file called resource.obj. This means that resource must not be
used as the stem for both a Fortran filename and resources in the same
directory and project. The resulting object file can then be linked with other
object files using SLINK as follows.
