It was written orignally for LB users who wanted a single
.EXEcutable file for ease of distribution.
I will be posting a "comments" page with remarks from users
as soon as I can find the time to do so.
We can also zip our set of files into ONE single compressed file. (Winzip...)

them to a directory and choose to run the exe. The wrapper stays a single
file. It extracts all of the program files to run the program, then
deletes those created files when the program terminates. One advantage of
this is that users cannot corrupt or delete needed program files, since
they are extracted again each time the program is run.
It is perfectly fine to zip your programs for distribution. The Wrap
offers an alternative for those who prefer it.
