eZIP v. 0.99g (20/12/2004, Frank Wochatz) Readme/What's new
eZIP v0.99g eZIP is a simple tool to manage your zip, rar, arj, lzh and 7z files from your WPS. eZIP Tree is an addon for eWorkplace (it works with XWP, too) to archive whole trees form the context menu of folders and drive objects. Req.: ZIP ZIP.EXE RAR RAR.EXE (rename RAR32.EXE to RAR.EXE) LZH LH2.EXE ARJ ARJ.EXE 7Z 7Z.EXE in path environment ZIP, RAR, ARJ, LZH and 7Z files will be displayed just like WPS folders. Features: - icon, detail or text view - detailview with archive specific informations (compressed size, ratio etc.) - drag and drop enabled - file launch via double click - file view with EPM - view zipfile infos - zip in zip in zip .... support - progress LED - (free) emailware - source code is available (contact me to get it) - eZIP Tree addon for eWorkplace, to zip whole directory trees. Requirements - OS/2 or eCs with installed REXX. - INFOZIPs zip.exe and unzip.exe (included in eZIP archive) (taken from http://www.info-zip.org, see .\infozip\licence!) - RAR.EXE (not included in eZIP archive) This version of eZip / eRAR was tested with rar version 3.4: http://www.rarlab.com/rar/rarx340.exe This archive is a selfextracting DOS executable, but it includes a 32-bit OS/2 executable. - a valid "set temp" or "set tmp" statement in config.sys Installation Remove previous associations with eZIP. Done with DEINST.CMD of this Package. Unpack the archive to a directory. Run install.cmd. This script creates the WPS objects and the associations with 'eZIP' (default association) and 'Extract to..' (secondary association). DEINST.CMD removes the objects and asociations. Run it before an installation of a new version or to remove eZIP from your system. Alternative you can use assoedit to set the association, but don't point to ezip.exe, but to the eZIP or eRAR program object. Maybe you have to remove / reorder associations of other ZIP tools. Copy rar.exe (not included), zip.exe and unzip.exe to a directory defined in the PATH environment variable in your config.sys. Note: if you have downloaded rar32.exe, you have to rename it to rar.exe, and then copy this file to your PATH. Dont run this version of ezip.exe from commandline. eZIP Tree installation for WPS Wizard user (tested with version 040) 1. Copy all files to a directory of your choice. 2. Create a context menue for folders (refer to the WPSWizard documentation) 3. Point the context menue object to eziptree.exe. One note about "drag and drop": DnD in eZIP is a funny thing, but it is not useful for dragging large files or folders from a ZIP file to other folders, because all the files must be extracted, temporary saved and then will be moved by the WPS from the temporary location to the drop target. Sometimes this results in a timing error. Use the 'extract all to..' or 'extract selected to..' functions to unpack such files. But dragging from other folders to eZIP is not a problem, or dragging single files or small groups of selected files or folders are not dangerous. The size limit depends on your system performance. Todo list Currently ZIP in ZIP support is limited. Changes in text files with the 'edit file' function in zipped ZIP files will not be saved. At the end this tool should be a full replacement for Object Desktop archive folders, without the limitations of OD. Note to OBJECT DESKTOP users: If you want to remove OBJECT DESKTOPs zipfolders from you system, it is recommended to reboot your system after deinstalling OD or parts of OD, before installing eZIP. Otherwise you probably will have problems with the association setup. Note to XWP users: Disable "enhanced associations" before installing eZIP. Otherwise you probably will have problems with the association setup. HISTORY new in version 0.99d - rar support (also encrypted rar archives are supported) - some enhancements in the "select a directory" dialog - bugfix in "select a directory" dialog (now works with ghost drives and NTFS volumes new in version 0.99 - bug fixed: "extract selected to .." failed in some situations, also fixed problems with extracting to root directories - drag and drop fixed: now the right-clicked file will be dragged and extracted (and not the selected, similar to the WPS) - eCs-like iconressource included new in version 0.98 - a lot of minor bugs fixed - new: eZIP tree addon for eWPS, XWP or WPS-Wizard new in version 0.97 - minor bugs fixed new in version 0.96 - status bitmaps have been 'outsourced' - edited files will be re-archived after closing the editor new in version 0.95 - bug fixed in 'extract to' dialog - new installation script v.04 no need for RLANUTIL.DLL anymore - bug fixed: no problems with null size files anymore new in version 0.94 - new function "extract selected to...(folder)" - compatible with ZIP files that was packed with the "-D" option I recommend to use never the -D option to build a zipfile, because eZIP will be slowed down by such files. - hotkey dupes corrected (some have changed) new in version 0.93 - location line and open parent' button removed new in version 0.92 - unzip.dll is not longer required, all will be done with unzip.exe Working with large archives, this speeds eZIP up to 10 times faster (only the -D option was not used to build the archive) - fixed bugs with empty spaces in filenames new in version 0.91 - new install script - new deinstalltion script - support for file and directory names with empty spaces (using unzip.exe insteed of the unzip.dll for this feature, unzip.exe must be available through PATH environment) - bugs in 'extract to folder' dialog fixed - new option 'hide floppy' for best speed of the 'extract to folder' dialog - new obkect 'Extract to..' This object opens the 'extract to folder' dialog without loading the ZIP file contents. Just drop your ZIP file on this object, or open this object from the context menu of you ZIP file ('open with'>'Extract to..') new in version 0.7 - bugs fixed - new feature: delete files from archive - new feature: add files and folders to zipfile via drag and drop - new parameter: /UNZIP The syntax is eZIP /UNZIP ZIPFILE.ZIP. This opens the 'extract to folder' dialog without loading the contents of the archive, for a quicker unzip. Feel free to create a second programm object with this parameter, and associate zipfiles secondary to this object. new in version 0.6 - bug fixed new in version 0.5 - bugs fixed - short keys enabled - speed of directory dialog improved new in version 0.4 - bugs fixed new in version 0.3 - bug in ZIP info dialog fixed - new feature: extract zipfile to folder - new installation routine, creates some system specific icons new in version 0.2 - tons of bugs fixed - context menues added - new features: select all/none, view file, file info - animation removed, LED added (animation takes to much processor time) - temp files will be deleted when eZIP will be closed Warning: all files in the subdirectory Drive\..\TEMP\eZIP will be deleted (temp is the directory taken from the environment variable defined in config.sys). Also open files will be deleted, if they are not locked by an application! Support See support.txt You may find the latest version at http://www.subsys.de/eZIP License eZIP is emailware.
