There were/are TWO programs here.
* The first, SHOWRES.Exe is a Window application, that not only extracts the resources, but displays the resulting Icons, Cursors, Bitmaps, and a sample screen is shown.
* The second, SHOWDLLS.Exe is a DOS version, so what is shown below is the simple HELP text, which explains its use.
This is a SHOWRES display after it has EXTRACTED some RESOURCES
SHOWDLLS - Version 1.0.03 18 March 1996 - Geoff R. McLane Purpose: Is to READ an NE or PE EXE/DLL and trace its IMPORT Table. Usage: SHOWDLLS [[-D[ebug]] -D] [-O OutFile] InFilePathName Notes: 1 - Additional -d switches produce more information. 2 - There MUST be a space between -O and OutFile name. 3 - If the InFilePathName contains a Drive or a Directory, then this will be used as one of the Search PATHS, else the current directory will be used. 4 - The Search PATH order is the given or current work above followed by those in the PATH environment variable. 5 - An attempt is made to include C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM even if it is NOT in the PATH environment variable, but C:\WINDOWS is NOT included if NOT in the PATH, but perhaps it should? Happy EXE discoveries!
