It is a standard MS tool. It converts a file with text message
definitions into three files:

- .h with the list of message IDs;
- .bin containing compiled messages;
- .rc including .bin so that the messages will be added to application

It is used mainly for two purposes:

1. To be able to generate Event log messages one need to register an
event source that points to .exe or .dll containing message table (aka
compiled messages);

2. Localization. It supports multi-language message files.
