What is a RC file?

RC files have multiple uses, and Resource File Script is one of them.

Resource File Script

These files are resource script files used by different software compilers. A compiler is a tool used by a programmer to generate executable programs from source code.

Resource scripts contain instructions on how a compiler should generate the program's associated resource file. A resource file contains external data like icons, text, images, etc.

For a resource that exists in a separate file, such as an icon or cursor, the script specifies the resource and the file that contains it. For some resources, such as a menu, the full definition of the resource exists within the script.
