Private Sub AppendToExe(exefile$,filetoappend$)
  Open filetoappend$ For Binary As #1
  filedata$ = String(LOF(1), " ")
  Get #1, , filedata$
  Close #1
  Open exefile$ For Binary As #1
  f = LOF(1)
  Seek #1, f + 1
  Put #1, , "WAP"   'any identifer
  Put #1, , filedata$
  Close #1
End Sub
Private Sub ExtractFromExe(exefile$,filetoextr$)
  Open exefile$ For Binary As #1
  filedata$ = String(LOF(1), " ")
  Get #1, , filedata$
  Close #1
  pos = InStr(1, filedata$, "WAP")
