[Lazarus] Tools for self-extracting executables?

Hi all,

Many moons ago I wrote small self-extracting executable programs in
Delphi... the executable would basically include both the program itself as
well as some INI and data files; when running it would access itself on
disk, find the addresses within the exe file where each data file starts
(and its size) and then extract and write them to disk. I think I installed
a component for this in Delphi. The component would both create the
self-extracting exe and be included in the exe in order to extract the

Before I start writing something from scratch, I just wanted to ask if
there are any such components (or components that would make writing it
easier) for Lazarus?

Thanks in advance!
