10.3: Use a Folder Action script for easier zip compression
Authored by: GusDoeMatik on Mar 31, '05 03:01:57PM
Thanx for the script. But is there anyway to modify this script? So that the file being zipped doesn't have two extensions? example: desert.jpg should look like this- desert.zip NOT desert.jpg.zip. The only reason I even care is because windows don't read double extensions. If it did I wouldn't even bother asking you if there was a way to modify this script.

10.3: Use a Folder Action script for easier zip compression

Any idea on how to eliminate the '._' file that is created when zipping a file? I don't see the file in Mac os but the file is there when the zip is uncompressed on a windows box. My windows recipients are annoyed and I'm baffled!
