"Best practice to allow 3rd party app to read messages file."

Best practice to allow 3rd party app to read messages file.

What is the best practice to allow a 3rd party health monitoring app to read the messages file. Since messages is a system file and is owned by root the app cannot read the file. I don't want to run the app as root so how should I allow the app to read the file. The read function is actually built into the apps binary so its not using /bin/view or /bin/more to read messages which I believe stops me from being able to add the permissions in the sudoers file.

Any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

GSMarkupLocalizableStrings.app - GNUstep Development Framework SYNOPSIS
GSMarkupLocalizableStrings.app [FILE] DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the GSMarkupLocalizableStrings.app utility. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution (based on the program's README file) because the original program does not have a manual page. GSMarkupLocalizableStrings.app is a GNUstep Renaissance utility that extracts the localizable strings from a GNUstep Renaissance Markup Language file (gsmarkup for short.) This allows the designer to provide pofiles for the strings to easily support internationalization. Renaissance was written by Nicola Pero (n.pero@mi.flashnet.it) and is part of the GNUstep project (http://www.gnustep.org). GNUstep Renaissance home page is at http://www.gnustep.it/Renaissance.
