Resource Formats for Asm, RMaker and Lisa

By David Wilson, Personal Concepts

Creating Resources

When I first began to program the Mac, the accepted way to create resources was to define them in a text file (named something like ExampleR.text) using the Lisa Workshop. You then ran the text file through the Lisa's RMaker to compile this high-level "resource language" into the correct format for each resource on disk.

In the Fall of 1984, I began to present Apple's three-day Macintosh Technical Training seminars, designed to teach the basics of Mac programming, and we used this approach to do our in-class programming with the Lisa Pascal Workshop.

Things have gotten more complicated during the last year, with the development of various utility programs to help you create and modify resources, and even decompile them into text files. Furthermore, as the readers of MacTutor long ago recognized, programming directly on the Mac has grown tremendously in popularity. Many programmers still use the text file approach, but use the RMaker that runs on the Mac - one with a slightly different format from that used on the Lisa.

I had to deal with these format differences when we developed Apple's new four-day Macintosh Programing Seminars , using TML Pascal on the Mac for in-class programming. I had to convert my sample programs' source code from the Lisa Workshop to TML Pascal, and finally created the table that follows to help in the process. It is presented here in the hope that you will also find it useful.

"But wait", you cry! "I never use a Lisa - why should I care about it's obscure RMaker format?" Good question. Here are some answers:

1. There are still many Lisa source code samples, from Apple and other sources, that you may want to use. This table will help you painlessly convert them to your Mac development system.

2. There are useful utility programs, such as DialogCreator and REdit that produce text files only in the Lisa format. Again, you must do the conversion.

3. Other utility programs, such as ScrnEdit, will produce text files in either format, but the text files often become a bit garbled in the process - you will need some reference to put things in order, and the table may also be helpful in that case.

Of course, you may have decided not to use text files at all, since resources can be created directly with ResEdit, and "included" with the RMaker or Linker step. The disadvantage to this approach is that you lose the documentation provided by the text files, and you sometimes will have more difficulty in exactly aligning the rectangles for scroll bars, dialog items. etc.

In any case, good luck in your Macintosh programming, and remember Scott Knaster's motto for all Mac programmers: "Everything you know is wrong."

[For those of us fanatics that insist on doing our resources in assembly language, we've also included the assembly formats from an earlier issue of MacTutor, listed below. Following the assembler formats are the RMaker resource formats for both the Macintosh and the Lisa. -Ed.]

;Resource Prototypes for Assembler usage

;
;NOTES -
;
;ALL resources using local labels (labels starting with @)
;must be bracketed by regular labels; local labels can be
;re-used only if the duplicates are separated by regular
;labels. This applies even if no warning appears in the 
;  resource prototype!
;
;     These are arranged roughly alphabetically, altho the
;DLOG/ALRT/DITL are grouped together at the end.
;
;In general # represents a numeric field normally filled in.
;The name and attribute fields on the RESOURCE line are 
;optional.
;
;The idea is to have this in one editor window, and to copy
;to the resource file being built as needed. This will
;hopefully speed the process, and give flexability the 
;RMaker doesn't.
;
;There are some additional explanatory comments with 
;various resources.
;
;Some of this is copied from MacTutor Vol. 1 No. 4.

RMaker Formats

The chart on the next four pages summarizes the Resource text file formats by the RMaker used by most Macintosh programming systems, including TML Pascal, Consulair C, Megamax C, and the MDS Assembler. The formats are shown in the left-hand column, with comments in the far right-hand column.

The center column shows the differences to be aware of when using the Lisa Pascal Workshop RMaker. In may cases there are no differences, but when there are, they are often subtle and easily missed, so check carefully.

The most subtle difference involves defining scroll bars, with the Macintosh RMaker needing the minimum, then maximum, then initial setting of the thumb. The Lisa RMaker wants miminum, initial, and then maximum. Your scroll bars will not work if you get these confused.

Other problems include the Macintosh RMaker's requirement that you separate items with a truly blank line (containing only a carriage return), and define a string resource with "STR(space)". The Lisa RMaker is more tolerant in these areas.

The format for dialog items (DITL) is that for Macintosh RMaker 2.0D2, shipped with the December 1985 Software Supplement (Volume I, Issue II). The ealier version is similar, but not quite as powerful.
