I have considered option 3, but it feels a bit too kludgy and there's always the possibility that different versions of zip behave differently since there is no standard for creating zip archives. I'm still keeping it in the back of my mind though since as you pointed out, option 2 can cause problems when the "trigger" file is loaded without verifying that the original file arrived correctly, or I've also seen cases where someone will load a trigger file without sending the data file (or the other way around). I'd say that it works 80-90% of the time which is good. Its just that 10-20% when it does not that is annoying, especially when you get paged at 3am because some idjit mistakenly created a data file without a trigger, or vice versa. The best solution would perhaps be a combination of some or all of these options (provided a workable solution could be created easily) :-)

    [stevieb]: I am thankful that I fell into Perl years ago in the manner I did. I don't believe there is another language that people care about so much, that they're willing to give everything. Langs come and go, but in Perl, it seems, things remain consistent.
    [stevieb]: The people back then (~2000) are the same people now, but with much more experience. I'm appreciative that I fell into the Perl rabbit hole.
    [stevieb]: Coding circles around Python devs, showing how unit tests should be done, enabling easy access to everything, learning basic C to wrap for direct hardware access... I am thankful.
    [stevieb]: I'm in an appreciative mood. Thank you fellow Monks, for all I know, and for the knowledge which I can pass on
