17PB Compiler www. powerutilities. no Version 07. 08 PB Compiler Version , Freeware, Knut Erik HollundThe purpose of PBC is to be a useful utility for automatic compiling/rebuilding of PowerBuilder libraries (.PBL's).PBC is using PowerBuilders interface ORCA. The file is typically named PBORC0x0.DLL (x = PB version) This DLL contains functions for managing the PowerBuilder libraries. You need to provide the PBORC0x0.DLL file yourselves.PBC is a command-line utility and is written in C for speed purposes. PBC replaces my old utility X-Timize which had the same task but was GUI based. I decided to create this utility after several requests of a command-line version of X-Timize.
