Description Joshua Buysse 2002-01-07 23:22:05 EST
This would require adding the zziplib package 
(http://zziplib.sourceforge.net/), which would add about 20KB to the binary CD 
and 200KB to the sources.

A package that one of my users is writing needs this -- it allows a professor 
to upload a zip file for a class web page, rather than 20 different individual 
files, without requiring ftp or webDAV access to the server (or the knowledge 
to use them.)  It could be done with system calls and tempfiles, but that gets 
ugly from a security standpoint.

I only recently (last wek) took over ownership of the php package, umm
considering the length of time this bug has been in the tracking system, is this
still an open issue? the php package alreasdy comes with zip/bzip support, I'm
unclear as to what zziplib would offer as the home page makes no obvious
referance to php.
