Thanks, but I can't do that without unzipping the file, can I? Also, I would need for the script to transfer platforms, I'll have to use File::DirCompare or something similar instead.

    Not sure, I don't remember details of archive formats.

    Typically archiving programs support listing contents of archives , so if that is faster than unzipping, and sufficiently detailed for your analysis, go for it, Try It To See

    You could do that. You could also install diff on the target machine :) whatever you need
