I have an application that I would like to keep track of the last 4 open files.  Like MS Word, displayed under the File pull-down menu.  How can I do this?

The points should go to Barry.  I downloaded the file he suggested (before there were any other suggestions), and even though it uses an ini file to keep track of the last 4 opened files, it works perfectly.
