I have a situation to create a zip file using two physically stored text files in my system.
Still I'm looking for a way to do it... your valuable suggestions will help me a lot.
You could do an OS-COMMAND to run a zip executable (windows/unix)
You could use an external dll (windows) or .so (unix)
You could use an ocx (windows)
You could use a .net class (eg System.IO.Compression.ZipFile for .net framework 4.5, or http://dotnetzip.codeplex.com/) (windows)
Great suggestions Lieven...
Thank you for your replay Lieven,
Can you please provide me few examples on available dll s for this purpose.. ?
It would be more helpful to me if you can give a description to use the mentioned dotnetzip library
If your using a .net assembly (.dll) you first have to add it to your assemblies (PDSOE > Project > Properties > Progress OpenEdge > Assemblies).
Then in a .p or .cls you can create objects of the type (eg. System.IO.Compression.ZipFile) and execute its methods (see the documentation msdn.microsoft.com/.../system.io.compression.zipfile(v=vs.110).aspx)
