This compiler converts .src files and .hrc equivalents into binary
.res files. The basic idea is that this provides a map between
integer identifiers and the resources: string, pixmap (only the
file-name), and VCL control properties.
In more detail:
Typically we would have a .hrc file with entries like this:
#define SID_STR_FOO 1234
And then a .src file with some entries like this:
Text [ en-US ] = "Foo !" ;
This is compiled into a binary resource file, we have many of these
which live in program/resource/ and then tends to get used in the code
String aStr( ResId( SID_STR_FOO ) );
It is important to note that any appearance of hierarchical structure
in the .src files is in fact a mirage. The file is compiled at root
into a plain map<integer,resource>.
There is some German documentation about it in a subdirectory called
[git:rsc/doku]. Seems to be very old (January 1992).
