I need a program what takes another file and turns it into an executable which extracts the original file.

Lets say the program is called wrapper.

wrapper <destination> <sources>+
will make an executable, containing all sources
on running this executable the sources will be extracted


1.  run: wrapper newfile.exe c:\mydir\somefile.mdb
2.  an executable newfile.exe is generated
3.  run: newfile.exe
4.  the sourcefile c:\mydir\somefile.mdb is extracted

This is not needed to make a virus or so. I need this to distribute datafiles by mail to other users. I want them to run an executable from within their mail, instead of Save-as.

The generated executable should show a status screen what files as exctracted.
Many thanx in advance.
