     This is an easy to understand example how to use the great Info-Zip Dlls ( to zip or unzip files or directories. The basics of this code, the included wrappers, are not by myself and will be supplied automatically if you download the Dlls from But I have to work a lot to understand how to use the Dlls in my own manner. This code shows simple to use zip routines: zip a file or directory, unzip a file or directory, unzip a single file of a zip file, delete a single file of a zip file, show the file names inside a zip file. Please vote. ---------------------------------------------- Update 08/17/2008: Fixing some severe bugs in the unzip routines.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
