Taking the question from odforce : http://forums.odforce.net/topic/25136-embed-h-files-in-digital-assets-for-use-with-wrangle-nodes/ [forums.odforce.net]

I have a subnet which I intend to transform to a .hda asset. Inside the subnet there are wrangle nodes and some of them include a couple of custom .h header files from houdini/vex/include folder. Now my question is how can I attatch/embed these header files in the asset so I don't need to copy files separately?

1- Can an asset embed header files and then copy them to a certain folder when a user is installing them?
2- Or maybe I can somehow embed the header files in the asset and then include them in the wrangle nodes with a relative path?

There is similar question for python libs here : https://www.sidefx.com/index.php?option=com_forum&Itemid=172&page=viewtopic&t=43325 [sidefx.com]

The fact that the asset should be easily distributable is important for my task as well.
