In the Empire game, there are a number of files needed to run the game. Apart from Empire.exe and six SDL/ttf dlls, there are three gifs, a couple of .txt files and a .ttf font. For now I'll leave the dlls but the remaining files I'd like to package all these files up into one big compressed file.
Does anyone know if there are any open source apps for creating a resource file this way, and a C (or C++) library to call to extract the information? If not I guess I'll have to write one for the next tutorial.
