Rbutil is written in C++ with wxwidgets 2.8 as toolkit.
The source is in SVN in the modul "rbutil".

To compile it you need wxwidgets 2.8 which is a bit difficult to get.
Have a look at their page.

On windows i use Code::Blocks as IDE for compiling rbutil and i have
compiled wx2.8 myself. I dont know if the Makefile is uptodate for
building rbutil directly in cygwin.

On Linux the Makefile works good.

So it would be really nice if you (or anyone else) finds the time to
contribute to rbutil.
