You need to use


that will turn on our support for tool resource bundles. To be clear, that only works with gnustep-base - ie, it won't work on Apple Mac OS X. If you need to support Apple Mac OS X, then you probably need to create a separate bundle or framework with your resources, and link the tool to it.

If you use xxx_HAS_RESOURCE_BUNDLE, you can then add resources to the tool, any sort of, with the usual

   xx_LANGUAGES, etc.

The tool resource bundle (and all resources inside it) can be accessed at runtime very comfortably, by using gnustep-base's

 [NSBundle +mainBundle]

(exactly as you would do for a gui application).

So ... if you want to do this,

 My current Makefile looks like this:

include $(GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES)/common.make


TOOL_NAME = raubvogel


You should add

raubvogel_HAS_RESOURCE_BUNDLE = yes
