I am just starting to use string tables.  I have created a file called SQL.RC  It is - exactly - this:


STRINGTABLE
BEGIN
1, "help"
END

---- I run the following command against it...

E:\DELPHI3\DELPHI3\BIN\BRCC32 -R SQL.RC

It always returns the error message...
Error sql.rc 4 66: Unterminated string or hexstring constant

What am I doing wrong...?
Thanks

It is suppose to be working. I tried it and it worked. I just had to move the .rc file into the directory where my brcc32 is in the bin drirectory and everything worked fine.

I had this in my .rc code...

STRINGTABLE
BEGIN
1, "help"
END

exactly like your, and it worked.....

HI,

E: is just anothe drive (not cd-rom) on my system.  When I move the file to the directory where brcc32 is located it works, otherwise it doesn't.  Goofy problem.

Thanks

Just another comment....If the file is in another direcotry you should move it to the brcc32, or try for more simplicity to write the full path to the file in this case SQL.rc

Ex. brcc32 -R C:\windows\desktop\SQL.rc

I haven't tried it but it might work and if it does I think it's more simple to work with ;-)
