Warning: if computer hangs while ZipMagic is archiving, there is TROUBLE.
Also, letting application use (espcially write!)
data files stored inside ZipMagic archive
is not totally safe. I'll say more, it's recipee for disaster!
File contents may vanish or entire ZIP may get corrupted.
And I also found out that when 22 days are left in evaluation,
ZM starts malicious nagging - nag screens appeared twice within 30
Finally, if DOS program is set to 'suspend to background',
then switching to another window while it's using ZipMagic may cause
Ok, now that I warned you, read about the features!
Displays ZIP files as folders.
Also allows you to peek into ZIP files with Internet Explorer.
Can even run programs without explicitly unzipping them - very convenient!
One usage example: when browsing software collection CD, go all the way
to README files without extracting them. Aside from mere timesaving, it can
also help against junk files filing C:\TEMP directory.
What's even more amazing - even in DOS prompt, you can enter ZIP files
like directories!!! This is supersonic!!!
Creating dreictory like A.ZIP will create a zip file, copying
stuff to it will compress the files!!!!
You can run program from ZIP directory - the files it creates will
be inside the archive. Even directories it creates will be
directories within ZIP file!!!
It even works with FTP server - ZIP files on my anomynous FTP server
can now be viewed like directories!!!!!!!!
And ZipMagic supports web servers too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Word of caution - some programs are better off seeing ZIP files as they
are - for example, command like FTP client.
