Compare contents of Zip files for changes.

• Email
• Follow

Is there a simple way or trick to compare contents of Zip files for any
changes. A diff on 2 zip files may show that they are different,  but
it would be nice to know which file(s) have changed between the two
archives.

Any thoughts ?

-Dexthor.

I have a zdiff, zcat, zmore, znew, zgrep, and zcmp utilities on my MacOS
X system.  They came with fink.  Goggling for these utilities shows
several linux packages.

newenvironment : \begin{w}{file.txt}CONTENT\end{w} ==> file.txt:"{CONTENT}"
Hi all, I would like to create a new environnement, which writes to a file (taken in first argument) the content surrounded with brackets. Example : \begin{mywriter}{file.txt} HELLO EVERYBODY \end{mywriter} prints nothing in latex output, but writes to file named "file.txt" : {HELLO EVERYBODY} I precise that I dont want to overwrite the file. I wrote this following code, but it doesn't work :o( \newenvironment{mywriter}[1]{ \IfFileExists{#1} { \ignore }{ \verbwrite{#1} \@charlb } }{ \IfFileExists{#1} { \endignore }{ \@charrb \endverbwrite } } Instead of...

Considering File Content: Will the NetBeans IDE (deployed version) produce files identical to the javac compiler files
(1) If I use the NetBeans IDE (6.8 version) and create a deployed version of a fairly large project will it be exactly the same as using the standard "javac" compiler deployed application on the command line. Will the files produced by both tools be exactly the same. Can you, please, tell me the differences that will occur. (2) Can you also give me a comparision of the Eclipse files produced on deployment versus the "javac" files produced. Will the two deployed projects be exactly the same. Thanks for the detailed intuitive information, On 4/26/2013 6:41 AM, cl...

Comparing 2 files to create a third file
Hi, I've got two files as follows: FILE 1 FILE 2 user5:12345 user3 user2:234239 user4 user3:34908 user5 user1:234342 user4:234993 and I want to use an awk script to generate a third file which contains the information contained in FILE 1 for only those users which are contained in FILE 2. So my FILE 3 in this sample would contain: FILE 3 user3:34908 user4:234993 user5:12345 Additional info: FILE 1 contains two fields separated with a ":" FILE 2 only has one field FILE 3 does not hav...

Tiny zip file that expands into a huge file
Ages ago on the net I found a site with an example of a zip file that was tiny (a few KBs at most), but when extracted the files inside were huge. I think it had something to do with zeroes or such like. Any remember such a thing?

does archive::zip support extracting large zip file, such as 12G?
Here is my code snippet: use Archive::Zip qw( :ERROR_CODES :CONSTANTS ); my $noofargs =$#ARGV; if ( $noofargs + 1 < 1 ) { print "Command line argument not enough.\n"; exit; } my$path = shift; my $zip = Archive::Zip->new(); my$status = $zip->read($path); print $status; die "Read of$path failed\n" if \$status != AZ_OK; If with a small zip file, it works fine; however if with a large zip file, like 12G, it will generate an error of "format error: bad singnature", but I did able to open this file using winzip. So is there filesize limit with arch...

java.util.zip
I'm returning to a project I left off a short while ago. One of the problems I had was that java.util.zip was having problems opening some zip files that opened just fine in winzip. When I get my hand into the code again (tonight perhaps) I can maybe reproduce the actual error, but as I recall, java.util.zip thought that the zip file was corrupt. Anyone had experience with OK zip files getting rejected by the zip package in this way? Will post more info when I have it. ta, alex On Thu, 16 Sep 2004 14:58:13 +0100, Alex Hunsley wrote: > Anyone had experience with OK zip files gett...

Help: search single keyword in multiple files within single zip files
I need to search single text keyword in the files (multiple) in a single zip file. Preferrably simple approach, as this command would be run by end-users in different server (same hpux OS). Syntax I used: zgrep store099 /archived/2004_12_sales.zip Within the 2004_12_sales.zip : 2004_12_01.dat 2004_12_02.dat .. .. 2004_12_31.dat I had run the above command, but it only return the results from the first file with the keyword. (only results in 2004_12_01.dat) Is there any solution for this problem? Thanks Regards, Kevin ...

glob fails on vsf::zip implementation with folders containing "*[*]*" inside the zip file
Hello, I made a small UI displaying the contents of ZIP files inside a starpacked application. To do this, I mount ZIP files using the vfs::zip package. If the ZIP file contains folders matching the name regexp pattern ".* ([^\]]+)+.*", than glob'ing files inside this ZIP file folder fails and no files are returned. The vfs::zip package is of the version 1.0.3, while my basekit/ starpack is of the tcl version 8.5.7. Has someone already experienced this and filed a bug?
