I recently attempted for the first time to ZIP some files I was surprised that each file and directory I selected was placed in the base root of the ZIP file I naively assumed the ZIP program and I have tried several to wit 7-ZIP Zip Free WinRAR and WinZip would place them into the root which is common to them all I utilized the Relative Paths setting for each entry I required this common root arrangement because these are source files utilized in a Visual Studio solution so their paths relative to each other needed to be unchanged The solution I finally decided upon was to copy each of the target files into a separate common root directory and then to simply emplace this directory into the ZIP file and Voila it worked However I still believe it is stupid to be required to do this So either I do not understand how to distribute software using ZIP or people have been enduring this copy requirement w/o complaint If that is the case I am fantasizing of writing a ZIP program which provides the option of calculating the common root so there is no need to perform the aforementioned copy So I seek your advice in telling me what is wrong w/ my fantasy Thank You Kindly
