Resource sections are supported in Windows. You need windres, and
add a {$R somefile.res} statement. That's it. You can use the winAPI
resource functions to access the resources.

There is resource section support for Elf binaries too. It is possible
to include a resource file compiled for windows in a Linux binary.
Here we provide a separate API which is much like the Windows API.

Probably because you are logged in as guest automatically ?
