Wrapping several .png files into one file

Hello,
I am trying to take some .png files and put them in one file, which will also specify the position of the start and end of each file in the big file (so that I can recover them afterwards).
The idea is to do something like a zip file.
I'm not very familiar with operating binary files, so any help would be great!
Thanks,  Libby

This is simple way. Look at Seek and Position for more complex work

If you need to save filenames in result file, write string:
N:=Length(Fname);
FS.Write(N,SizeOf(Integer));
FS.Write(FName[1],SizeOf(Integer));
and read
FS.Read(N,SizeOf(Integer));
SetLength(Fname,N);
FS.Read(Fname[1],N);
and then
FSSave:=tfilestream.create(fname...)



procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
FS,FSLoad:tfilestream;
N:integer;
begin
FS:=tfilestream.create('e:\files.dat',fmCreate);
N:=2;
FS.Write(N,SizeOf(Integer));
FSLoad:=tfilestream.create('e:\4.jpg',fmOpenRead);
N:=FSload.Size;
FS.Write(N,SizeOf(Integer));
FS.CopyFrom(FSLoad,N);
FSLoad:=tfilestream.create('e:\5.jpg',fmOpenRead);
N:=FSload.Size;
FS.Write(N,SizeOf(Integer));
FS.CopyFrom(FSLoad,N);
FSLoad.Free;
FS.Free;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
var
FS,FSSave:tfilestream;
Num,N,NSize:integer;
begin
FS:=tfilestream.create('e:\files.dat',fmOpenRead);
FS.Read(Num,SizeOf(Integer));
for N:=1 to Num do begin
  FSSave:=tfilestream.create('e:\file'+inttostr(N)+'.jpg',fmCreate);
  FS.Read(NSize,SizeOf(Integer));
  FSSave.CopyFrom(FS,NSize);
  FSSave.Free;
end;
FS.Free;
end;

Thanks,What happened was that I answered my question before I got any response... But I'll give you the points for the effort.
I think I did it a bit easier.
This is the code :

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    Button2: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
    procedure Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

  FileDetails = record
    name : array[0..7] of char;
    size : integer;
  end;


var
  Form1: TForm1;
  FileDetailsArray : array[0..9] of  FileDetails;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure FileSave;
var
 FromF, ToF: file;
 NumRead, NumWritten: Integer;
 Buffer: array[1..2048] of Byte;
 count : integer;
begin
 AssignFile(ToF,'AllPng.gnp');
 Rewrite(ToF, 1);

 seek(ToF,sizeof(FileDetailsArray));
 AssignFile(FromF,'91827E42.png');
 Reset(FromF, 1);
 count:=0;
 repeat
  BlockRead(FromF, Buffer, SizeOf(Buffer), NumRead);
  BlockWrite(ToF, Buffer, NumRead, NumWritten);
  count:=count+NumRead;
 until (NumRead = 0) or (NumWritten <> NumRead);

 FileDetailsArray[0].name:='91827E42';
 FileDetailsArray[0].size:=count;

 AssignFile(FromF,'91842E42.png');
 Reset(FromF, 1);
 repeat
  BlockRead(FromF, Buffer, SizeOf(Buffer), NumRead);
  BlockWrite(ToF, Buffer, NumRead, NumWritten);

 Reset(FromF, 1);
 repeat

 CloseFile(ToF);

procedure FileLoad;
var
