NAME
       glib-compile-resources - GLib resource compiler

SYNOPSIS
       glib-compile-resources [OPTION...] {FILE}

DESCRIPTION
       glib-compile-resources reads the resource description from FILE and the
       files that it references and creates a binary resource bundle that is
       suitable for use with the GResource API. The resulting bundle is then
       written out as-is, or as C source for linking into an application.

       The XML resource files normally have the filename extension
       .gresource.xml. For a detailed description of the XML file format, see
       the GResource documentation.

OPTIONS
       -h, --help
           Print help and exit

       --version
           Print program version and exit

       --target=TARGET
           Store the compiled resources in the file TARGET. If not specified a
           filename based on the FILE basename is used.

       --sourcedir=DIRECTORY
           The files referenced in FILE are loaded from this directory. If not
           specified, the current directory is used.

       --generate
           Write the output file in the format selected for by its filename
           extension:

           .c
               C source

           .h
               C header

           .gresource
               resource bundle

       --generate-source
           Instead of a writing the resource bundle in binary form create a C
           source file that contains the resource bundle. This can then be
           compiled into an application for easy access.

       --generate-header
           Generate a header file for use with C code generated by
           --generate-source.

       --generate-dependencies
           Prints the list of files that the resource bundle references to
           standard output. This can be used to track dependencies in the
           build system. For example, the following make rule would mark
           test.gresource as depending on all the files that
           test.gresource.xml includes, so that is is automatically rebuilt if
           any of them change:

               test.gresource: test.gresource.xml $(shell $(GLIB_COMPILE_RESOURCES) --generate-dependencies test.gresource.xml)

           Note that this may or may not be portable to non-GNU make.

           Also see --dependency-file.

       --c-name
           Specify the prefix used for the C identifiers in the code generated
           by --generate-source and --generate-header.

       --manual-register
           By default code generated by --generate-source uses automatic
           initialization of the resource. This works on most systems by using
           the compiler support for constructors. However, some (uncommon)
           compilers may not support this, you can then specify
           --manual-register, which will generate custom register and
           unregister functions that your code can manually call at
           initialization and uninitialization time.

       --internal
           By default code generated by --generate-source declares all
           initialization functions as extern. So they are exported unless
           this is prevented by a link script or other means. Since libraries
           usually want to use the functions only internally it can be more
           useful to declare them as G_GNUC_INTERNAL which is what --internal
           does.

       --dependency-file=FILE
           Write dependencies in the same style as gcc -M -MF to the given
           file. If FILE is -, the dependencies are written to the standard
           output. Unlike --generate-dependencies, this option can be combined
           with other --generate options to generate dependencies as a
           side-effect of generating sources.

       --generate-phony-targets
           When creating a dependency file with --dependency-file include
           phony targets in the same style as gcc -MP. This would typically be
           used with make.

ENVIRONMENT
       XMLLINT
           The full path to the xmllint executable. This is used to preprocess
           resources with the xml-stripblanks preprocessing option. If this
           environment variable is not set, xmllint is searched in the PATH.

       GDK_PIXBUF_PIXDATA
           The full path to the gdk-pixbuf-pixdata executable. This is used to
           preprocess resources with the to-pixdata preprocessing option. If
           this environment variable is not set, gdk-pixbuf-pixdata is
           searched in the PATH.
