It may be buggy because I've not time to test it thoroughly Razz
OK was very buggy indeed Very Happy two bugs were fixed (one very serious because I accidently left a unused ocx referenced which caused the app to crash )

My DLL2INC supports unicode and imports with ordinal too Very Happy
It also supports command line - read 'readme.txt' for info on the parameters.

For such purpose I was usually using similar program from Comrade's homepage (http://comrade64.cjb.net). I think Vortex has written similar program too... so there's quite a lot of dll2inc apps Smile

Code:
-- -------------------------
DLL2INC.exe - Application Error
---------------------------
The instruction at "0x66063fea" referenced memory at "0x00000014". The memory could not be "read".


Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program
---------------------------
OK   Cancel   
---------------------------
    


I couldn't run a debugger to give more information... something is screwed up on this system.

Vasilev Vjacheslav, you can try my version of dll2inc tool with /U switch which will only output functions that end with "W" or do not end with "A" (e.g. CreateFileW -> CreateFile, GetCurrentProcess -> GetCurrentProcess).

comrade, I think you may have forgotten to press setup.bat

(This is for the last version) If you download the new version you don't have any setup.bat.

Ok updated it again:) Razz
This time it doesn't use any third party libraries and runs straight as an exe file.
Of course I can't stop vb6 bloating a exe but im sure 74.5k exe is not too bad.
I will rewrite it in FASM when I learn enough and finish with another project I'm doing.

Yes, indeed, I did forget to press the setup.bat button.

This tool is very nice, and is very similar to something I have already seen. Smile

Hope you dowlnloaded the newer one ...it looks nicer and has some bug fixes Smile and doesn't have ssubtmr6.dll as a dependency. Could you tell me where the one you saw was...i've haven't found it hehe Razz

I'm planning to add the feature to search at the function address and find the ret statement (the hex) and take the immediate value so i can find the parameter count. What do you think?

Do you mean something as comrade mentioned? Ie. to output names with -W (CreateFileW) instead of -A (CreateFileA)? If so, do yuo think it'd be better to output two forms eg.:
Code:
(...)
CreateFile, 'CreateFileA',\
CreateFileW, 'CreateFileW'.\
(...)    
Or is it better to output only one form, depending on given command line parameter?

That's what's comrade's command line tool does...maybe you could do -a for ansi, -w for unicode and -a -w for both Smile

I'll be adding that to mine shortly.

Vasilev Vjacheslav: http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=3229 Uploaded there new version with enhancements as you requested. Now '-a' will output only ANSI, '-w' will output only Unicode, '-aw' or '-wa' will output both. Also when choosing mode with ANSI or Unicode only (not both) the name is generated without suffix, ie.:
Code:
        apiresolve -a kernel32.dll
        invoke  SetWindowText, [hwnd], text 
        ; fasm will output in import table 'SetWindowTextA'

        apiresolve -w kernel32.dll
        invoke  SetWindowText, [hwnd], text 
        ; fasm will output in import table 'SetWindowTextW'

        apiresolve -aw kernel32.dll
        invoke  SetWindowText, [hwnd], text 
        ; fasm will generate an error 'Unknown name' (or something like
        ; that Smile), because you'll have to use then in code
        ; 'SetWindowTextA' or 'SetWindowTextW' yourself    

The only fact that isn't good all about it, that the program doesn't output 100% correctly. For example in kernel32.dll there are such APIs:

  • lstrlenA
  • lstrlenW
  • lstrlen
When using only ANSI or only Unicode mode, my program will output like this: (assumig that '-a' was used)
Code:
        (...)
        lstrlen,'lstrlenA',\
        lstrlen,'lstrlen',\
        (...)    
And I have no idea how to fix this problem, because to avoid such situtation I would have to build large database with hashes or whatever and compare every new import with ones seen before. I guess this matter will rest in programmer's hands.
Also when building include file from 'ntdll.dll' there's names reserved in FASM eg. 'fcos'. These are also to fix manually by every programmer. Sorry, but there would be hell a lot of work with avoiding these two situatons, but they can be easily fixed even by beginner so I don't see a point why I should check it in program

Next thing, I may also add some switch to output imports as ordinals, but anybody will ever use it? Maybe only in 4K intros with ogl, but I assume that 4k coders won't have regular import table at all Smile So for now, I won''t code it

EDIT: btw. dlls are windows specific, so why is this thread in main?
