What is Tempted
This tool was developed to help with the translation of applications. It allows you to edit the texts in Wimp Template files (filetype &fec) without running the risk of making other, unwanted, modifications
It enables you to export icon texts from a

It was inspired by the text export/import option of !ResEdit.

It also produces and reads a text file, but gives a full description of the template file, including things like icon flags and positions. It also works on Toolbox Resource files (filetype &fae).
Use a program like Diff to compare different versions of the text file.
Keep the text version under a source control system like
Detect icons that are positioned beyond the visible area of a window. Sometimes, after lots of manipulations of a window, icons fall outside the visible area. They can remain hidden there because the usual graphic template editors do not show them. TempTed will simply show these icons in the list it produces.
Version 2.9 is the current release version, and is the first to be 32/26-bit neutral. It was built with the Castle AcornC/C++ compiler and linked with the Stubs library. Running this program requires the
Castle 32/26-bit Shared C Library (see System/zip) to be loaded.
Please experiment with this version to see
how it fits your needs and report your experiences back to me.
In case you experience problems with v2.9, you may want to fall back to the 26-bit-only version:
