I pulled the zip archiving functions out of the Master Library stack. It worked...except that it truncated the first character of every filename in the archive.
This is the offending code from the addFolderToArchive handler: put theFile into theArchiveItemName put offset(pRootFolderPath, theArchiveItemName) into theCharNo if theCharNo is 0 then return "file is not in expected folder" delete char 1 to (the number of chars of pRootFolderPath + 1) of theArchiveItemName # strip root folder up to slash (zip item names shouldn't start with a slash) The value I see for pRootFolderPath includes the ending slash, so the "+ 1" here is deleting the first character of the filename. Can I just remove the "+ 1"? Will that make it work on Windows but fail on another system?
