Is it possible to append data to an existing executable file and have that file
run correctly? I'm adding scripting features to one of our products and I
wanted it so that our software can create a standalone executable for the end
My plan was to create the base executable file which had the script engine and
business logic to run the script and ship that with the product. Then compile
the end user's script and combine it with a copy of the "base executable" to
produce the final executable file.
Is this possible or is there a more feasible way of having a program create
stand alone executables? Normally, I'd just ship the fpc compiler and just
compile the final exe behind the scenes but I don't want to make the source code
to the "base" exe available.
Thanks for suggestions or links.
