ZIP/JAR Compression Registry Key
JANOS supports ZIP library files. In fact the WebServer uniquely uses a ZIP
library to create virtual folders allowing an entire website to be contained
within a single file. Applications written in Java utilize a JAR library which
is nothing more than a renamed ZIP file.
ZIP/JAR files usually contain multiple files in an efficient compressed form.
The compression is performed when files are added to a library. While there
are optional compression algorithms, JANOS supports the DEFLATE compression.
This is compatible with libraries generated by most systems.
The ARC command, and its aliases ZIP and JAR, can be used at the command line
to manage a compressed library file. When adding files the necessary
compression is handled by JANOS. There are a couple of options affecting
the compression procedure and these are controlled by Registry settings.
Changes in these settings do not affect the ability to extract files from
libraries generated with other settings by the JNIOR or any remote PC.
