Ripping websites apart and putting them back together...

This is a discussion on Ripping websites apart and putting them back together... within the A Brief History of Cprogramming.com forums, part of the Community Boards category; I type "[s]he" by habit rather than just "he". Usually it prevents people from taking offense. I've never had someone ...

    I type "[s]he" by habit rather than just "he". Usually it prevents people from taking offense. I've never had someone take offense before because of it. Sorry.

    Now that I see how people see it, I will zip all the achives.
    On my website, I used to have all of the files separately available for download and in an archive, because I had so much free space on the web server. But it's a pain to keep all of those files straight, and even more of a pain to download. Now I only have the really big files available separately (like SDL.DLL).

    Hmmm, good point Koni.

    EDIT @dwks:
    Yeah, guess it was my mistake, but maybe you should use "(s)he" rather than "[s]he"?

    Neat, I didn't know deleted messages showed up like that.

    That's the standard used in published literature, but since in several programming contexts square brackets indicate optional characters, I like using them for some reason.

    Server-side scripting languages like PHP can gzip files on the fly, so you only ever have put one type of files on the server.

    The entire code is:
    Code:
    <?php
      file_put_contents('output.gz', gzencode( file_get_contents('input.file'),9));
    ?>

    I did a little research on how to create a TAR archive using php. Although this isn't supported by a PHP extension, there's a pear package that does that just fine, called Archive_Tar.

    The whole code to tar and gzip several files is here:
    Code:
    <?php
    
    // include class
    require("Archive/Tar.php");
    
    // create Archive_Tar() object
    // specify filename for output file
    $tar = new Archive_Tar("data.tar.gz", "gz");
    
    // set up file list
    $files = array("images/blank.gif", "images/close.gif", "images/closelabel.gif", "images/thumb-1.jpg");
    
    // build archive
    $tar->create($files) or die("Could not create archive!");
    
    ?>

    You have no idea how much I need that code for my little DB project Well, maybe you do. Well, I didn't know I needed it until I read it just there, but it's very handy!

    That's a good idea, you know. I should use something like that. (My server does support PHP, luckily.)
