    Embedding resources into executables

    Is it possible to embed resources into executables like in Windows? I've looked through the gcc compiler and I see no mention of this. Is it necessary to use some other tool?

    What's a "resource?" You can embed anything you want into an executable. It's fairly straightforward. Be more specific?

    Well, images, xml files, text files, anything is what I'm refering too. How do you embed things into an executable?
