    Store data at end of compiled exe

    hi does anyone know were I can find an example of placeing data at the end of a exe then reading it back, I am trying to make a self extractor.
    I know I can maybe use the old vb style get and put file functions, but was wondering if there is a more better way thanks.

    it can be done. i wrote a self extractor that does exactly that, but writing to the end of an exe is regarded by antivirus software as similar to virus behaviour, and because of new windows permissions you'll find your self extractor to be a lot less useful than you're expecting.
