Command-line tool to edit .resources?

P: n/a
Hi all!

Is there any command-line tool that can add/delete and replace string
and files in .resources?

You can use resgen.exe to convert the .resource file to either a .resx
(XML) or a .txt file. You can the use the edit command to edit this
file. grep is a good third party tool to do string replacements from the
command line.
Resgen.exe can be used to convert the edited .txt or .resx file back to
the .resource format.

Aquila,

There is not a commandline tool, however there is a tool in the C#l for
that.

Thanks, but I also need to embed images and other files into a .resx or
..resources, is there any command-line tool for that?
