  Fixing Bugs in the Archive::Zip Perl Module on 2008.04.22 0:05 alanhaggai

alanhaggai writes "Abstract: Perl programs often need to manipulate .zip files. Archive::Zip ( is a Perl module that allows a Perl program to manage Zip archive files without calling an external utility.

The Archive::Zip module, however, has some bugs which prevent it from generating fully-portable .zip files, that are handled correctly by all .zip file readers and manipulators. The project's main aim is to address the outstanding bug reports (, by using pyconstruct (, which is a flexible framework for defining dissectors for binary formats in a declarative way.

I have to start working on the project soon. I, most probably, will be having the time to work from the start of May 2008. I am very thrilled to work on it and be part of the Perl community.

Hope the project goes well. I am also applying for `The Perl Foundation Grants'.
