Gradle C++ plugin - including file resources?

With the Java Gradle plugin, I’m able to put resource files in src/main/resources and they would all get included in the build artifact automatically.

Is there anything similar to this for the native C++ plugin, or do I need to implement this myself? For instance, I’d like to include some property files along side my built executable.

My understanding is that ‘resources’ are a Java convention that Gradle supports. I don’t believe there is a similar convention in C++. I think you have to do it yourself because there isn’t really a convention for those files. I use a copyspec to copy data/config files from my source into the installation archive.
