Support reading archives (zip, rar, ...)

Apr 2, 2013 at 12:45 PM
I'm using AlphaFS to enumerate and query file entries. I would like to also enumerate entries which are stored inside of archive files.

Would it be conceivable to add support for this feature?

Right now I'm using SharpCompress to peek into archives, which is a C# library and could potentially be used by AlphaFS for this purpose.

Hi mafutrct,

I wouldn't count on it.

The primary function of AlphaFS is to overcome the Windows' PathTooLong issue.

Adding support for reading of archives is, well, a project of its own. :)

I don't know if there are File I/O issues with SharpCompress, but if so perhaps you could
persuade the author to also use AlphaFS since it seems likely that its users might also
run into a PathTooLong issue sooner or later.

Regards,
Yomodo
