Delphi saving to recource fork or similar

I think i seen that a delphi EXE file have something similar to Macintosh resource fork, so i can save and access data in the EXE file. I want to store a small database there so the user will only have a exe-file and nothing else, is this possible and how?

I don't think it is possible unless
you have the resource
you have the compiler
you compile the resource and link it to the exe with the compiler
problem on windows : the exe is in use and as long as it is use : can't be changed

so i believe it is impossible on windows

I don't need to change the data while the exe is in use. Maybe i can add the data at the end of the exe and then put a integer at the "new end" with the original size of the exe?
