( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Here's the problem. I have a list of html files on a Windows box that I want to zip using Archive-Zip. No matter what I do I get an empty zip file. Here's the code, see below. $server_root is the doc root of IIS, d:/online.I use CGI because this must be triggered thru a web interface. What am I doing wrong?
use CGI qw/:standard/; use CGI::Carp (fatalsToBrowser); use Archive::Zip qw( :ERROR_CODES :CONSTANTS ); use lib '..'; require 'globals.plx'; require './config.plx'; print header; open FH,$vsc_log; my @files = <FH>; close FH; print qq(change dir to $server_root),br; chdir "$server_root" or "Can't cd to $server_root: $!"; my $zip = Archive::Zip->new(); foreach my $file (@files){ $file =~ s@d:/online/@@; $file =~ s@/@\\@g; print "add $file",br; $zip->addFile("$file"); } print qq(write $vsc_zip),br; die 'write error' unless $zip->writeToFileNamed( $vsc_zip ) == AZ_OK;
thanks for your help - Dorian
