ZIPping empty directories



  • While evaluating the PACL 4.01 tools, I tried to zip a directory tree that contained numerous empty subdirectories. With two exceptions (test\test8\test6 and test\test9\test6), PACOMP did not place any empty directories into the ZIP file.

    I created the attached file testpa.zip with the following command:
    pacomp.exe -a -r -P testpa.zip test*

    For comparison, I created the attached file testwz.zip with WinZip using the command:
    wzzip -aPr testwz.zip test*
    attachment_t_1052_0_testpa.zip
    attachment_t_1052_1_testwz.zip
