NAME ^ - Modify windows executable files

SYNOPSIS ^ | --console ] [ --icon iconfile ] [ --info key=value;... ] exefile


This program rewrites PE headers in a Windows executable file. It can change whether the executable runs with a console window, as well as setting the icons and version information associated with it.


Options are available in a short form and a long form. For example, the three lines below are all equivalent:

    % -i new.ico input.exe
    % --icon new.ico input.exe
    % --icon=new.ico input.exe
-c, --console

Set the executable to always display a console window.

-g, --gui

Set the executable so it does not have a console window.

-i, --icon=FILE

Specify an icon file (in .ico, .exe or .dll format) for the executable.

-N, --info=KEY=VAL

Attach version information for the executable. The name/value pair is joined by =. You may specify -N multiple times, or use ; to link several pairs.

These special KEY names are recognized:
