#195 new enhancement

Add relative directory support to archiver

Reported by: Steven Levine Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: Release_3.25
Component: AddOns Version:
Keywords: Cc:


The archiver needs an option to allow creating zip with relative paths. Currently all paths are relative to the root.

One way to implement this is with a Mimimize paths checkbox. FM/2 would select a working directory that minimizes the store path.

Another way is to allow the working directory to be specfied and minimize the paths based on the selection. This supports cases where the user wants a top level empty directory to be included in the zip. This directory name is typically the application name and version.

IMO there's no need to add another option. Just change the code to start an archiver from the parent dir of a specified file object.

On OS/2 we don't have fixed paths as on Linux, where that option makes sense. On OS/2 the proposed destination directory is usually changeable.

Other archiver GUIs I know behave so.
