  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.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

Bun′dling, an old custom in Wales, New England, and elsewhere for sweethearts to sleep on the same bed without undressing.—To bundle off, bundle out, to send away unceremoniously or summarily. [Conn. with Bind and Bond.]

  2. Barbara Walsh:

    We don't know what time the child was last fed, when she drank. Given that it's wintertime and she was in her car seat, she was probably wearing mittens, a hat. We tend to over bundle our children, so the fact that she was dry, she probably had on multiple layers because it's winter, and there's always a chance that she had just been sort of fed right before this happened probably all played a role.
