Thanks -- I zip all the time, but never have I gzip'd, so I'm green. I'll have to figure out what tools are used for that since it appears that my WinZip copy doesn't permit a gzip archive to be created (as best I can tell at first glance). Is there an obvious choice (e.g. free) that runs on Windows?
I can do your step 5 now -- ever since folks at the Datatel User Group meetings forced me to dance at age 36 or 7 (having grown up in a non-dancing sub-culture). Dawn M.

I forgot. Install procedure 4.5: Create Voc pointers (or send along a process to create them) -----Original Message----- From: Jeff Schasny [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Wednesday, February 18, 2004 10:59 AM To: U2 Users Discussion List Subject: RE: Distributing U2 files 1) Make your source files Universe type 19s (eliminate the whole fnuxi thing) 2) Gzip them all up along with a paragraph to be placed in the voc file to resize them to whatever filetype you prefer (I'd go with dynamic for anything other than source code files, but thats just me). Installation procedure would then be: 1) download the gzip file 2) ungzip into an existing Uni* directory 3) copy the paragraph to the VOC file 4) execute the paragraph 5) dance joyously -----Original Message----- I have a set of small UniData files that I would like folks to be able to receive via e-mail and then install. The requirements are: 1) OS can be most flavors of Windows or UNIX 2) DB can be UniData or Universe 3) I would like to have a single "zipped up" file for distribution, but if two or more are best, I'd like to know that 4) assume there is only a windows server available for the packaging function (no unix box available for that task) 5) the user should need to do "almost nothing" to be able to get to the point where they can type LIST filename for these files and have them work at the command prompt. Thanks in advance for your suggestions. --dawn Dawn M.
