you may have seen those programs who generate exe''s, i.e. "mp3 to exe", "html to exe", "yadda to exe". this is the question: any idea how this is done? any hint? i don''t even know how to begin the search. my idea is to do a program for writing text and, when you wrote all you want, there is the possibility of generating an exe (something like an embedded viewer/interpreter). i think gamemaker embeds an interpreter and scripts/tiles/etc into the exe. i want to do something similar, but with text, and some pictures

Such programs usually create a copy of a reader/view/player and insert the data to be read/viewed/played as a resource of the executable. Switch up the icon(s) and rename appropriately and you''re home dry.
