Multi-UnZIP

Hey Altap,

Is it true that I can still not multi-UnZip archieves, or am I completely wrong?

Thanks and Bye,
Canefield

Yes, it is. I will move this thread to feature requests.

It is possible to unpack multiple archives using Plugins > Automation > Unpack Multiple Archives command, but installed 7-Zip is required.

Hey Altap,

Is it true that I can still not multi-UnZip archieves without first have 7-ZIP installed in AS 2.54, or am I completely wrong?

Thanks and Bye,
Canefield

Hey canefeld, that's quite a unique way of saying "I still can't multi-UnZip", though you are right, there has been no significant improvement in this area since you asked the last time.

First: You don't have to install 7-zip. You only need the 7-zip Plugin.
Second: With the wunderfull automation Plugin comes the script "Unpack Multiple Archives.js" (Unpack Multiple Archives using 7-Zip archiver). Does this work for your needs?

(
Just to note, some might construe "multi-UnZip" to mean a "nested" archive.

A mozilla extension, an ".xpi", would typically contain a ".jar" within. Both the .xpi itself & the .jar are simply ZIP archives, one nested within the other.

I beg to differ - 7-zip plugin is the one that has to obey Salamander's limitations and that's why we have to work around them by using an external program - 7-zip executable.

Yeah - this one uses the 7-zip executable, too.

Might it be possible to modify "Unpack Multiple Archives.js" such that it uses the unpackers configured in Salamander, be it internal or external, to do the unpacking? If not, what is missing, and was it possible to extend the automation interface such that it becomes possible?
