What is FileWrap?


FileWrap is a utility that ‘wraps’ external data required for an application so that it can be included within an executable. Data is statically linked into the application and may be accessed at run time using the PVRTResourceFile tools code or from your application. This is useful for platforms without a file system and for application distribution and deployment because it keeps all required data in one place: the application executable.

Information and guidelines for FileWrap are included in the PowerVR Insider SDK User Guide included in the SDKs.
