This is an example of how you could do it...

Program Patch;

uses crt,dos;

const OffsetInFile    : longint = 100;
      NewData         : array[0..3] of byte = (3,5,8,2);
      SizeOfNewData = SizeOf(NewData);

var F        : File;
    Filename : string;

One more thing...

can Seek(F, OffsetInFile) become
    Seek(F, 00018DEF) ???

 OffsetInFile : longint = 0081DC8
is that possible? can it use HEX value ???

Thank you for your time being...
