Documentation on RES file format

I want to write a RES file dialog extractor and would like some docs other than just general header information, does anyone have a link with detailed docs.

What language do you want to write a RES file in?  There are many tools that allow you to write RES files including most of the Microsoft programming suite.

I am not really interested in creating a RES file, I want to decompile a MASM res file to extract the dialogs. I have decode the header information to identify a dialog in the RES but have no information on fields for the data section of the dialog.

Actually thanks for the help but I managed to figure it out for myself, the DLGTEMPLATEEX and DLGITEMTEMPLATEEX structures follow the same format as the compiled RES file so after the header is decoded the values just have to be plugged into these structures and it seems to work fine.
