exe_update.pl - Modify windows executable files
exe_update.pl [ --gui | --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:
% exe_update.pl -i new.ico input.exe % exe_update.pl --icon new.ico input.exe % exe_update.pl --icon=new.ico input.exe
Set the executable to always display a console window.
Set the executable so it does not have a console window.
Specify an icon file (in .ico, .exe or .dll format) for the executable.
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.
