in reply to Re^2: Calculating differences between the contents of a zip and a directory
in thread Calculating differences between the contents of a zip and a directory
Thanks, but I can't do that without unzipping the file, can I?
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
Also, I would need for the script to transfer platforms, I'll have to use File::DirCompare or something similar instead.
You could do that. You could also install diff on the target machine :) whatever you need
