DESCRIPTIONDeuTex is a wad composer for Doom, Heretic, Hexen and Strife. It can be used to extract the lumps of a wad and save them as individual files or the reverse, and much more. When extracting a lump to a file, it does not just copy the raw data, it converts it to an appropriate format (such as PPM for graphics, Sun audio for samples, etc.). Conversely, when it reads files for inclusion in pwads, it does the necessary conversions (for example, from PPM to Doom picture format). DeuSF is a trimmed version of DeuTex that is used to merge sprites and flats from a pwad into an iwad, which is sometimes necessary because Doom and its breed do not handle sprites in pwads well. See docsrc/dtexman6.txt for more information on DeuTex and DeuSF. Decomposing a wad To decompose a wad (i.e. extract its contents), use the -extract (a.k.a. -xtract) command. When decomposing a wad, DeuTex creates one file for each lump. The files are created in one of the following subdirectories of the working directory: flats/, lumps/, musics/, patches/, sounds/, sprites/, textures/. The decomposing process also creates a very important file, wadinfo.txt, which will be used later when composing. To extract the contents of the Doom II iwad, deutex -doom2 /path/to/doom2.wad -xtract To extract the contents of a Doom II pwad named mywad.wad, deutex -doom2 /path/to/doom2.wad -xtract mywad.wad To extract only the sprites, deutex -doom2 /path/to/doom2.wad -sprites -xtract To extract only the sounds and save them as .voc, deutex -doom2 /path/to/doom2.wad -sounds -voc -xtract Composing (building) a wad Composing is the symmetrical process. It's done with the three commands -build, -create and -make, that are equivalent. Using wadinfo.txt and the files in flats/, lumps/, musics/, patches/, sounds/, sprites/ and textures/, DeuTex creates a new wad. To create a new pwad named mywad.wad, deutex -doom2 /path/to/doom2.wad -make mywad.wad To create a new iwad named mytc.wad, deutex -doom2 /path/to/doom2.wad -iwad -make mytc.wad Other operations DeuTex has many (too many ?) other commands like -join, -merge, -usedtex etc. See docsrc/dtexman6.txt for a full description.

DIAGNOSTICSAll messages are identified by a unique code. Some messages are identical ; the code is useful to distinguish them. All codes have four characters ; two letters and two digits. The letters identify the part of the code where the message comes from, the digits give the message number within that area. In general, numbers are assigned so that messages that come from parts of the code that are executed earlier have lower numbers.
