Troy, et al:
Does the .zip format have any connection with the "gzip" format used
by rev's compress/decompress functions? Is it the same format that
Stuffit uses on the Mac if a new archive is named with a ".zip"
extension? ... or if one selects "Unix Compress" translation? Can
the StuffIt .zip be opened on windows?
Having said that, I agree with the comment that a .exe is more universal.
Ken, thanks for your suggestion for Mac archives. I'll probably try
it on the next update of the downloader page; but I want to resolve
issues re: Unix before I do the next update.
