Compiling message files (.msg)

The .msg message files must be compiled to .iem binary files, in order to be loaded by the runtime system.

In order to use message files in a program, the message source files (with .msg extension) must be compiled with the fglmkmsg utility to produce compiled message files (with .iem extension).

The following command line compiles the message source file mess01.msg:
fglmkmsg mess01.msg

This creates the compiled message file mess01.iem.

For backward compatibility, you can specify the output file as second argument:
fglmkmsg mess01.msg mess01.iem

The .iem compiled version of the message file must be distributed on the machine where the programs are executed.
