Freebase

  1. Bundle

    In NeXTSTEP, OPENSTEP, and their lineal descendants OS X and iOS, and in GNUstep, a bundle is a directory that allows related resources such as an application's executable and its graphics to be grouped together, appearing as a single file to the user. Examples include applications, frameworks, and plugins. They are accessed with the NSBundle class in Cocoa, NeXTSTEP and GNUstep's Foundation frameworks, and with CFBundle in Core Foundation. A bundle usually contains one file representing executable code, and files that represent resources such as nibs, templates, images, sounds, and other media. On some other systems, such as Microsoft Windows, these resources are usually included directly in the executable file itself at compile time. On older Macintoshes, a similar technique is used, where additional metadata can be added to a file's resource fork. The Finder treats bundles, which can also be referred to as packages, as opaque files with no underlying structure. The Uniform Type Identifier for an Apple bundle is com.apple.bundle. Similar in concept are the application directories used in RISC OS and on the ROX Desktop, and the RUNZ bundles in Super OS.

Examples of bundle in a Sentence

  1. Warren Buffett:

    You do things when the opportunities come along. I've had periods in my life when I've had a bundle of ideas come along, and I've had long dry spells. If I get an idea next week, I'll do something. If not, I won't do a damn thing.

  2. Dietrich Dörner:

    By labeling a bundle of problems with a single conceptual label, we make dealing with that problem easier - provided we're not interested in solving it.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Human brain provides us an amazing example of organizational teamwork. You see, the left and right halves of human brain do function slightly differently, and yet they don't work independently or in an isolation or even in a never-ending competition as the myth goes. The two halves always work seamlessly together as a unique system; offering a perfect teamwork between the logical and the intuitive, between the analytical and the creative. The Corpus Callosum, the main nerve bundle or the white matter that joins the two halves, facilitates and synergistically coordinates the communication between these different parts of the brain to ensure the effective functioning of human body. In my view, this is a classic example of teamwork and coordination, created by none other than the Supreme Power to enlighten us.

  4. Harley Rotbart:

    Your mother was right: Studies have shown that people who do bundle up against the cold are less likely to catch colds later on in the year.

  5. Tom Miller:

    We tend to put things in silos, if your focus is on improving people's health you would think about what could be rearranged. How do we best assist the person in front of us, if you could reshape it and bundle together what the government is offering? Maybe housing is the thing that is going to make them healthy, not another doctor visit.
