    DLLs <- sound files, and nesting.

    I was looking at the files for my latest project recently, and realized I really shouldn't have easily usable BMP and WAV files just sitting in the directory to be taken. I decided to put all my additional files into a DLL, and I have the equivalent of no experience with DLLs. Couple o' questions:

    - I'm using Borland Turbo C++ 4.5 for Windows - which comes with a program I think is called Resource Workshop - You can design icons, etc.. graphically, and then codes them into a file to be compiled into a DLL. I know I can do this with my icons, BMPs etc... but I'm also going to have a lot of WAV files - can I put these in too?

    - Can I nest DLLs inside other DLLs? I'm using SDL, and to clean up the rest of the directory, I was wandering if can have a DLL inside a DLL. If so, how?

    - I've been looking around but I can't find one - can someone point me to a good tutorial on using DLLs - like accessing the objects, etc..

    Dont use DLLs as archives as that's not what they are for, and they wouldnt do a good job.
