.Z file extracted as .txt



  • I’m using PACL v4.01, and like it so far. Simple to set up, simple to administer, and it runs well as a service account (without elevated permissions or registry access).

    But when unzipping a .Z file, it throws a .txt on the end of the file name. Here are the details:

    • Original file: test.dat
    • Zipped file: test.dat.z
    • Command: paext -e test.dat.z
    • Unzipped file: test.dat.txt

    Why does it add the extra .txt extension? It doesn’t do it for the same test.dat file zipped through WinZip.

    Thanks for any clarification / work around you can provide.

  • By the way, I just tested this in PACL5.0b. It extracts the file without adding the extra .txt extension.

    So I guess that’s the answer - upgrade to PACL5.0. Can anyone confirm that, or was this just a happenstance fix that might be re-introduced at some point?

    Thanks,

    Andy Wolfe

    Andy,

    many changes were done to PACL to bring it to 5.00, basically all of the improvements from PA versions since PACL, should be included in 5.00 version.
