using filetests to zip both files and directories transparently
Authored by: LeeH on Aug 05, '07 12:57:28PM

Sorry, does not seem to work. Added .zip to two places and it would partially work.

However, what would be nice is to have the workflow go like this:

Set up: single file on desktop, folder on desktop with some files in it and another folder in it with some more file (i.e. a level 2)

Now, results: run the work flow and have it zip the single file. Next, it would zip the folder and the subfolder. This does not happen now - no second level.

Also, would like to stip the path out of the zip file just to the folder level. For the single file a -j seems to work. However, how do you get the file path to just start at the folder being zipped, not at the user/desktop/etc level when unzipping?

Can this be done?
