wbmgt cat

Read the entered BMG files (text, binary or szs sub file) and print them as decoded text files to standard output. All BMG files of a single archive (SZS,...) are combined to 1 source. The output of all source files is concatenated.


1.   Syntax

wbmgt CAT [source]...

2.   Options

Option Param Description
-H --no-header Suppress the syntax information section in BMG text files.
-B --brief If set, the information header in decoded text files is suppressed (for historical reasons same as --no-header). If set at least twice, all comments are suppressed and the output is packed without empty lines. If set 3 times, the #BMG file indentification is also suppressed.
--inf-size size Defines the 'INF0' size of new BMG files between 4 and 1000. The first 4 bytes of a INF0 record is a pointer to the string and the remaining bytes the string attributes. However, maximal 20 attribute bytes are supported and additional bytes are assumed to be NULL. All BMG files of MKW have a size of 8.
--force-attrib attrib Forces, that all attributes are set to this vector.
--def-attrib attrib Define the default attributes for BMG files. If not set, the default attributes are estimated. On text output, strings with default attributes are printed without attribute vector. The usual default attribute for MKW is [1].
--no-attrib Suppress the output of any BMG attributes at text BMG files.
--x-escapes Use \x{} escapes instead of \z{} escapes.
--old-escapes To be compatible with v1.43 and earlier, print 1A escape sequences with total size of >12 bytes as single words using \x{}. Also don't use \x{} and \u{} with parameter lists.
-1 --single-line If set, don't print continuation lines for BMG text output. If set twice, print only single text lines and suppress attributes like option --no-attrib does it.
--no-bmg-colors If set, suppress the output of '\c{color}' escape sequences for colors definitions in BMG text output to be compatible with old versions of the tools.
--bmg-colors Force output of '\c{color}' escape sequences with names, even for foreign (not MKWii) BMG files.
--no-bmg-inline Print BMG values as separate line before the message definition to be compatible with versions until v1.39. The output for the standard value 0x01000000 is always suppressed. This was the default until v1.43. Since v1.44, --bmg-inline is the default.
--bmg-inline [DEPRECATED] Print BMG values between message name and the equal sign using the format '[...]'. The output for the standard value (usually 0x01000000) is always suppressed. Since v1.44, the inline mode is the default. It can be disabled by option --no-bmg-inline to be compatible with versions until v1.39.
-l --long Print long numeric message IDs instead of alternative message names like Txx, Uxx or Mxx.
-X --export Enable the export modus and create small and machine readable text files for easy post processing. The option works similar like -HBl11 for BMG text files.
-i --ignore Ignore non existing source files without warning.
-P --patch-bmg mode[=param] This option specifies a BMG patch mode. Some of the modes need a parameter or a file name of a BMG patch file (raw or text BMG), both separated by an equal sign. Modes with required file names are PRINT, REPLACE, INSERT, OVERWRITE, DELETE, MASK, EQUAL and NOTEQUAL. A mode with text parameter is FORMAT. Standalone modes are ID, ID-ALL, UNICODE, RM-ESCAPES, RM-CUPS, CT-COPY, CT-FORCE-COPY and CT-FILL. Unique abbreviations are allowed.

If this option is used multiple times, all patch files will be processed in the entered order. --patch is a short cut.

--msg list If this option is set, the BMG messages are filtered by this list. Only enabled messages are exported to the ouput BMG file (binary or text).

The parameter is a list of message ids (short MID, 'Txx' or 'Uxx' or Mxx' or hex number) or message ranges (MID:MID) or one of the keywords NONE, PARAM, CUPS, TRACKS, ARENAS, CHAT, CTCODE, CTTRACKS or ALL. If an element is preceeded by a minus sign, it is removed from the filter list (disabled).
