Pacl pacomp command line stops
I am using pacomp to compress a large archive. After the fourth file, pacomp silently stops, and the ‘.zip’ file it creates is invalid. The size of the archive is 1.5GB. Are there ways to diagnose the problem? Is there a filesize limit on the archive?
what is the size of files being archived? PACL has limits there…
The size of the files are:
file1 - 678,545 KB
file2 - 156,753 KB
file3 - 2,472,081 KB
file4 - 559,505 KB
file5 - 265 KB
file6 - 327,377 KB
file7 - 4,682,257 KB
file225 - 615,057 KB
Total - approx 245 GB
Winzip successfully produced a zip file of 99 GB. pacomp produced an invalid zip file of size 1.5GB and stopped on the fifth file above.
Easy troubleshooting - PACL curretly has 2/4 GB limit.
However, new version of PACL is coming out this week, so please test it out and see if it works properly.
I would be absolutely interested in testing higher limits, as well as the planned Unicode support. How do I pick up the latest release? Thanks.

Let us know how it works…
