    Just curious, but when attaching a file to a post it does not seem to accept .zip files but yet I have seen many .zip attachments throughout the forums. How do you upload a .zip attachment?
    Using Code::Blocks and Windows XP

    The only place I can remember seeing zips was here: http://cboard.cprogramming.com/showt...727#post335727 and I think they've changed the allowable file extensions since that thread first opened.

    Zips are not allowed here and I've not seen them for quite some time. Zips are not allowed b/c they could contain exe's which could contain viruses.
