The dilema : I have text based files that I want to use at some point. I have compiled these into my EXE file as a resource. I now need to know how to programatically extract these before I can use them. i.e. SaveToFile('TextFile.Txt')

Hmm.. Dear TaskForce, you are not good at asking questions. Do you need to save the file from within your application, then the easiest way to do it is like:

var
  SL: TStringList;
Begin
  SL:= TStringList.Create;
  //.. Add some strings ...
  SL.SaveToFile(Filename.TXT);
  SL.free;
End;

or do you want to extract the text from your ressource file? in that case you should use TRessourceStream to first load the .exe file with the .LoadFromFile method, and then identify the ressource type you are looking for.
