    winzip can unpack tar.gz, if that matters for windows users :-)

    You're just getting around to last year's messages now? Where have you
    been? On the Dark Side of the Moon? :-))

    I guess I have to quote the original phrase and hope you can develop a
    better understanding of what the original discussion was about...

    "NO one should be sending out files that are not 8X3 standard DOS
    filenames."

    Please explain how one can use winzip with standard DOS systems.

    Moot point in any event. The problems have been resolved.

    Cheers ... Gerald

    ... A good brainwashing could fix that problem of yours.

    it was something about dos

    "NO one should be sending out files that are not 8X3 standard DOS filenames."

    i agree on that

    Please explain how one can use winzip with standard DOS systems.

    put a floppy disk into a dell laptop and open it from windows, pretty much anyone can do this, if it was not for dell that have removed floppy drives for secureity reasons :-)

    yes winzip still works in dos i belive ?

    You're missing the point. The processing of hatched files is done in an automated process by programs developed specifically for that purpose. If
    you are requiring a sysop to intervene and MANUALLY process the files with winzip or sprinkle Holy Water on the files, then there is not much point in hatching files. The "standard" for hatched files is 8x3 and nothing else
    is acceptable.

    That _may_ be true, BUT, it will not work unattended and in an automated
    mode!
