(though I find 7zip creates smaller zips than jarg
does any1 know if 7zip can be setup to execute from the cmdline? (with 98 not 2k
yea 7zip can be used from the cmdline... well the syntax is a pain in the arse (check "7-zip.chm" for details).
add it's directory to your path variable (autoexec.bat)
after reboot or starting the bat manually u can run the 7z.exe (cmd line version) from every directory.
well... u don't have to add it to your path variable if u just want to call it from bat files.
"C:\Progs\7zip\7z.exe" a -tzip test.zip -mx a.class readme.txt
-tzip=use zip compression
test.zip=put it into "test.zip"
a.class=a file i would like to add
readme.txt=another file i would like to add
in theory u can even compress a bit better than the default "max compression" default does. if u set fastbits to 255 (fb=255) and passes to 4 (pass=4).
[the default "max" uses fb=64 and pass=3]
well... in reality it seems to make no difference. i tried it with a lot of different files and it was always as big/small as the default max compression preset. but i think there are some files where it would make a difference
