It's definitely not that hard. So far I just had problems to find some library that is usable for this. Most are either far too complex or just a big pain to use.

I had a pain in the butt time getting it to compile for MinGW, but it should be a lot easier with MSVS (which I haven't attempted to compile it with).

At any rate, it actually already supports reading from wads, as well as zip files and a couple other archive types. Pretty easy to use too.
