In windows there's also the more simpler way to include strings directly
into resource files. This way you call LoadString() to read them into your
program. But that's not as flexible as using message files and calling
FormatString(). With this you can use format like this one: (They may seem a
bit cryptic ;-)

reloading running job %1!d!: '%2'.

And if you want to write a program, which stores messages in the windows
system log, like Windows NT Service programs, you are forced to use the
message compiler.
