[REBOL] zip file support wanted - help needed

From: petr:krenzelok:trz:cz at: 14-Mar-2001 8:24

Hi, today I talked to Carl at Express conference. We talked about possibility of adding .zip support to Rebol. Few ppl requested the feature some time ago, and I can personally find it usefull. WinAmp for e.g. uses .zip files for skins too, it even doesn't unpack them on hd. I surely don't know Rebol internals, but maybe it could work as a scheme? e.g.: write %rebol.exe read zip:///c/rebol/download/ Rebol currently has some kind of compression/decompression available. Carl agreed to support requested feature, but RT lacks enough manpower to handle all tasks they need to do. So - is here anyone who knows C well, and would like to code it for RT? Or at least - are there any sources available to study, or even complete open source solutions (of course, with licence allowing RT to add it into Rebol)? Thanks, -pekr-
