I'm messing around with the compress() function.
My goal is to compress an .app package then upload it to an ftp server.
Right now the below code works on small files but seems to choke on a
I have a few questions:
1. in order to compress a MacOSX 'package',do I have to devise a
'walker' to identify and compress each file separately inside? yikes.
2. Will the compress function work like this between two files:
put compress(URL tPRE) into URL tPOST ?? I can get it to work
for small files now...
3. Also after reviewing compress() I think I like the new zip
routines better - the progress callbacks are well worth it fo big
But there's no revZipFolder command, which is really what I'm
looking for. That would really complete the zip library...
my code is like this:
put "/Users/sbarncar/Desktop/chateauWire20.app.gz" into
ON sqbCompressFileToFile pSourceFile,pDestinationFile
put "binfile:" & pSourceFile into tPRE
put "binfile:" & pDestinationFile into tPOST
put compress(URL tPRE) into URL tPOST
