Another handy feature to have in the editor would be to integrate an ZIP function. Like "Project Explorer" you could have a "Project Zip" with a date on the end of the name (should zip all but Backup files).

Im always zipping up a directory of work and posting it, or saving it. To me it would be very handy to have.

If your not sure where to start you could look here:

As well, if you needed more legistical help in the R&D i would be happy to help.. I think zip would be best since its the most widely supported...

Its more like 15 hours (different days ;) )


Im glad you like my idea, but im not sure of your end result... Are you planning on distributing the dll? Cause i saw alot of liciencing restraints using it... Wouldnt it be better find or make a licience free equivalent..?

As long as the end product is generally uncompessable it would be OK. I would suggest ZLib, that way it can be statically linked into the program, no need for an external DLL at all. You can incorporate the compression/decompression directly into RadASM or an addin DLL.

I was not planning to distribute the dll.
Too bad zlib is such a mess.
