Description:

This utility binds the widgets in one or more widgetfiles into a single resource file resfile. It's usually run automatically as part of the PhAB build process. If you specify a loadfile (an executable or shared object in ELF format), bindres creates a temporary resource file, then binds it into the application.

It is possible to run an application with a separate widget resource file. If widget resources are not bound into an application executable, at runtime the system looks for widgets in a file with the same name as the application, but with a .res extension.

This utility can also list or extract the widgets in widget resource (.res) files generated by bindres.
