uresb: Resource Bundle
This sample demonstrates
Building a resource bundle
Using ICU to print data from a resource bundle
uresb.c Main source file in C
uresb.sln Windows MSVC workspace. Double-click this to get started.
uresb.vcproj Windows MSVC project file
resources.dsp Windows project file for resources
resources.mak Windows makefile for resources
root.txt Root resource bundle
en.txt English translation
sr.txt Serbian translation (cp1251)
To Build uresb on Windows
1. Install and build ICU
2. In MSVC, open the workspace file icu\samples\uresb\uresb.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 uresb directory, e.g.
cd c:\icu\source\samples\uresb\debug
4. Run it (with a locale name, ex. english)
uresb en
WARNING: The .txt files must be in the same directory as the executable, which is not the case by default on some systems.
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. Compile
cd <icu directory>/source/samples/uresb
gmake ICU_PREFIX=<icu install directory) ICU_PATH=<icu source directory>
To Run on Unixes
cd <icu directory>/source/samples/uresb
gmake ICU_PREFIX=<icu install directory> 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.
