Using WEL and resources without a C compiler


    I want to use WEL (the Windows Eiffel Library), but I don't have a C compiler.

    I want to use Windows resource files, but I don't have a C compiler.

    Some WEL examples (which use resource files) cause an exception.

WEL can be used in precompiled form (downloaded from ISE's Web pages, or precompiled by you) without a C compiler.

But to take advantage of Windows resource files you need a C compiler. This applies to the WEL examples in the delivery that use resource files.
