feature request: download directory as zip file
« on: May 20, 2003, 09:27:56 PM »
once in a while I run hfs to share mp3s with friends (mainly ones that don't use ftp) and they might want to download a whole album (which is in a directory)...

could it be possible to add a feature to zip a folder on the fly and delete it when the download is complete?

hmm...
i think to download a directory should be a client issue
however, i will take a look at it, to know if it is possible to create zip files without getting a 10Mb overhead in the exe file :)
i want to keep it small
and since this is an opensource project, i don't want to use closed libraries
