ZipMBS class

class, Compression, MBS Compression Plugin (Zip), class ZipMBS,
Plugin version: 8.6, Mac: Yes, Win: Yes, Linux: Yes, Console & Web: Yes, Feedback.

Function: The class for writing to a zip file.
Notes:
This is a simple class which uses zlib and has some limitations:

  • only deflate as compression method
  • only one date per file is preserved
  • no resource forks on Mac OS
  • no encoding handling
  • no Apple or Microsoft extensions for special file flags or permissions.

But it works nice to provide a zip file to clients. For example a download of JPEG files in an archive with one download from Web Edition.

Be aware that you can't compress Mac applications with this class, as the we don't preserve permissions, so the decompressed file has not the right flags set to make it executable.

This class has no sub classes.

Some examples which use this class:
