V can embed arbitrary files into the executable with the
compile time function.
Paths can be absolute or relative to the source file.
When you build your code in a
the file will not be embedded.
Instead, it will be loaded the first time your program
embedded_file.data() at runtime, making it easier to change in external
editor programs, without needing to recompile your executable.
In production mode,
the file will be embedded inside your executable, increasing your binary size,
but making it more self-contained and thus easier to distribute.
In this case,
embedded_file.data() will cause no IO, and it will always
return the same data.
$embed_file supports compression of the embedded file in production mode.
Currently only one compression type is supported:
which could be used to obtain the file contents as
