ufortune: a sample program demonstrating the use of ICU resource files by an application.
This sample demonstrates
Defining resources for use by an application
Compiling and packaging them into a dll
Referencing the resource-containing dll from application code
Loading resource data using ICU's API
./ufortune.c source code for the sample
./ufortune.sln Windows MSVC workspace. Double-click this to get started.
./ufortune.vcproj Windows MSVC project file.
./Makefile Makefile for Unixes. Needs gmake.
resources/root.txt Default resources (text for messages in English)
resources/es.txt Spanish language resources source file..
resources/res-file-list.txt List of resource source files to be built
resources/Makefile Makefile for compiling resources, for Unixes.
To Build ufortune on Windows
1. Install and build ICU
2. In MSVC, open the workspace file icu\samples\ufortune\ufortune.sln
3. Choose a Debug or Release build.
4. Build.
To Run on Windows
1. Start a command shell window
2. Add ICU's bin directory to the path, e.g.
set PATH=c:\icu\bin;%PATH%
(Use the path to where ever ICU is on your system.)
3. cd into the ufortune directory, e.g.
cd c:\icu\source\samples\ufortune\debug
4. Run it
To Build on Unixes
1. Build ICU. Specify an ICU install directory when running configure,
using the --prefix option. The steps to build ICU will look something
like this:
cd <icu directory>/source
runConfigureICU <platform-name> --prefix <icu install directory> [other options]
gmake all
2. Install ICU,
gmake install
3. Build the sample
cd <icu directory>/source/samples/ufortune
export ICU_PREFIX= <icu install directory>
To Run on Unixes
cd <icu directory>/source/samples/ufortune
gmake check
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<icu install directory>/lib:.:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Note: The name of the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable is different on some systems.
If in doubt, run the sample using "gmake check", and note the name of
the variable that is used there. LD_LIBRARY_PATH is the correct name
for Linux and Solaris.
