Zipper version 10001 Feb 01, 1999 Fixed the problem whereby the "C" option in the zUnZipFiles function was reversing the order in which the case-sensitivity should apply. Use of the "C" option now forces file matches to be case insensitive. The default behavior is to be case sensitive. Feb 03, 1999 Fixed problem with "l" (list archive files) feature in zUnZipFiles. It now works. Feb 05, 1999 Added errorcode detection to zUnZipFiles/zZipFiles. Now, if a zip/unzip is successful, it will return a "0" rather than a null string (""); otherwise it will return error codes followed by a tab and the error string. Errors are listed in the latest help file. Feb 09, 1999 Fixed the problem in zUnZipFiles whereby the included and excluded delimited list of files was not working. Now delimited file lists are working (both in include and exclude). Feb 10, 1999 Added errorcode detection to zZipFiles. Now, if a zip is successful, it will return a "0" rather than a null string (""); otherwise it will return error codes followed by a tab and the error string. Warnings are also returned as a "0". Errors are listed in the latest help file. Feb 19, 1999 Fixed problem with errors in the string table not being processed. Zipper version 10002 Feb 25, 1999 Undocumented "D" (ignore directories) in zZipFiles help, since this is the default behavior anyway. Added another parameter (excludefiles) to zZipFiles so that files can now be excluded from an archive. Zipper version 10003 March 30, 1999 Added F option to zZipFiles. Multi-part archives are not yet supported, except in conjunction with zZipFiles. (All parts must be concatenated together in order, and then zZipFiles with the F option must be performed on the concatenated archive in order to "fix" it.) Added support to set compression level efficiency (0...9). Options from 0 to 9: 6 This is the default compression 0 No compression 1 Fastest compression (less compression) 9 Slowest compression (optimal compression, ignores the suffix list) Fixed compression options 0-9 so that compression works correctly. Zipper version 10004 Apr 29, 1999 Added "t" option, "Test Archive Files", to zUnZipFiles. See help file for more details. Added error handling for the case in which include files are specified. Additional error handling repaired for both zip and unzip functions. Zipper version 10005 May 17, 1999 Changed zUnZipFiles to compare last three chars of the wildcard "*.*" and translate to "*" if found (Unix-like file matching). Result: zUnZipFiles now unzips files without file extensions, even if the user inputs "*.*". (The zZipFiles always worked to zip up all files, even those without file extensions, so that function has not been modified for this particular issue.) Zipper version 10006 Sept 10, 1999 Fixes the problem whereby specifying *.zip for a series of zip files in a directory returned the error message, "Cannot find any matches for wildcard specification", and wasn't unzipping all of the zip files. Ver 10007 Dec 13, 2000 The Zipper extender has been updated to a new format to allow more descriptive function names and additional parameters. This version of the extender requires WinBatch 2001A or newer to run. This extender will not work on WinBatch 2000C or older. In addition, so as not to affect existing scripts using a previous version of this extender, the extender DLL has been renamed to include a 34I in the DLL name instead of a 32I. Old and new versions of this extender can *usually* co-exist side by side. To use the new extender with old scripts and with WinBatch 2001A or newer you will need to change the AddExtender line in the script to reflect the new DLL name. e.g. AddExtender("wwzip32i.dll") should become AddExtender("wwzip34i.dll") Ver 10008 Nov 28, 2001 zZipFiles/zUnZipFiles are no longer restricted to 64K of response text. The allocation procedures have been changed so that these functions allocate memory on an incremental basis as needed. Ver 10009 Apr 23, 2002 Fixed zZipFiles memory allocation bug. zZipFiles was GPFing when zipping up large numbers of files because a buffer size variable had not been initialized. Version 10010 April 29, 2003 Fixed zZipFiles so that files with brackets in their file names can be zipped up. Version 44011 March 17, 2010 Added new optional parameter to both the zZipFile and zUnzipFile functions. The new parameter accepts a password used as an encryption key for encrypting and decrypting a Zip archive. When this parameter is present the functions will automatically attempt to either encrypt or decrypt the archive. If a password is used when building an Archive with zZipFiles, the same password must be used to extract files from the archive with zUnzipfiles. The password must be at least 1 character and no more than 80 characters. A longer password will produce somewhat better encryption results although any length password produces relatively weak encryption. The zZipFile function's repair archive option(F) now requires that an output file name be specified as the third parameter to the function. Any successfully repaired files will be placed in the file named as the third parameter. The original input archive will not be changed. The extender now supports the archiving of files of up to 2GB in size and archives greater than 10GB in size. These size limits may vary depending on you version of Windows and the file system. To use the new extender with old scripts and with WinBatch 2004B or newer you will need to change the AddExtender line in the script to reflect the new DLL name. e.g. AddExtender("wwzip34i.dll") should become AddExtender("wwzip44i.dll") The this version of the extender can only be used Windows 2000 and newer. Version 44012 September 7, 2011 Add new 'r' options to the zZipFiles. Like the 'R' option this option cause the function to traverse the directory structure recursively starting at the current directory but unlike the 'R' option it traverses subdirectories when a wild-card patterns that describes only a subset of the files in the directory structure are used in the include file parameter. Ported to 64-bit.
