.paf.exe format?

Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough, but I can't seem to find anything about this. What are the specifications for the .paf.exe format? I'd like to use it for my portable CRPG, Spectacles: Bruce's Story.

Just PAF=PortableApps Format. Comes before the .exe because it still is an exe. It's the format, like the folder-App, Data, Other. All that, and then the launcher format.


I felt so different without a signature.

Info in source

There is some info in the PAM source readme.txt

By default, the program expects the following directory structure:

-\ (Usually the root directory of your portable device)

I think from there the .paf is just a ResHack of a self extracting zip or 7-zip.

The .paf.exe extracts itself to the PortableApps folder then.
