Other than the fact that this does not come with Windows either, it is a great project... (Never mind Object Rexx does not come with Windows)

Nice for those compression formats other than .zip

Just another 3.5 MB file that I'd probably never need again - thanks,
but I'll pass.

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >, Lee Peedin
( XXXX@XXXXX.COM ) says...

You can use gzip for Windows from http://www.yqcomputer.com/ #exe, it's a
61KB download.

Lee -

SourceForge has a problem with zip files. Since they can contain viruses
it is frowned upon to provide zip files for download (although a lot of
projects ignore this). If you are going to access open source projects
in general, believe me, you will want to get used to dealing with
tar/gzip files on your Windows system. Some project administrators are
adament about not supplying zip files.

For the ooRexx project, we have not made a decision about zip files in
general. But the feedback on this download may influence our decision.

Personally I would suggest InfoZip .zip format for Win32 / OS/2 and some sort of tar / gzip format for *nix OS's. I had not heard of .zip frowning around SF.net. I believe my suggestion is what Mark
Hessling has been using for his projects.

And the typical (not necessarily the OOREXX) user on Windows knows
of little other than ZIP...



IMHO and FWIW, ZIP files are no better or worse than other
compressed archive formats (in principle) in terms of "possibly
containing malware" and let the "buyer beware" in any and all cases
(and scan any such archives in advance). More important than the
archive type I suggest, is the *source* of the archive file and
trustworthiness of the provider. The OOREXX project and in
general, SourceForge would be at the "more trusted" end of the
scale I hope. <G>.

I believe you should offer ZIP format files. *And* MD5 digest
values for all down-loadable files.

I have created the zip file with the same contents as the tar file.
Happy dowbloading.
