³ Revision History ³

Ver. Date/Description of changes
1.02 03-19-91. Fixed another minor bug that would incorrectly size
the resulting Zip files. This bug didn't have anything to do
with the integrity of the Zip files, only their size. It would
only occur if there was a file in the Zip that was very close
yet still lower than the maximum size specified.

1.01 03-16-91. Fixed a minor bug that incorrectly set the number of
files in the End Central Directory record. This bug caused no
errors or data loss in version 1.0. I also decided to lower the
prices of Zip Chunker.

1.0 03-11-91. ZC now checks to see if the Zip file has only 1 file
in it. If it does ZC doesn't process the Zip file.

á.95 03-08-91. Optimized the central directory processing. Added
percentage done to the "Organizing x file(s)" message. Added a
new message "Organizing into chunks..." that also has a percentage
done. Added percentage done to the "Creating x..." message.

á.85 03-08-91. Some cosmetic changes. Changed some of the Doc
files. Optimized buffer usage.

á.81 03-05-91. Modified the "Organizing the files..." message to
tell how many files it is organizing. I also changed the
maximum size message to tell that it is in bytes. I also
changed where the cursor was located when it displays messages.

á.80 03-05-91. Fixed a bug that would occur when attempting to size
a Zip to the size it was already.

á.30 03-05-91. I have addressed and fixed the problem of not being
able to process a Zip file with a central directory > 64K.

á.25 03-05-91. I added a new message to let the user know ZC was
working (so they don't think that it hung the computer when
working on large Zip files). I also moved some code around
so that it was more organized. Fixed another memory allocation

á.21 03-04-91. I removed the code I had inserted for debugging
purposes. Modified the error messages so that they are more

á.20 03-04-91. This version fixed a memory allocation problem. I
also changed memory models so that I could have one pool of
memory to access. I fixed the problem of Zip Chunker deleting
the original Zip file when ZC aborted.

á.11 03-03-91. This is the first released version of the fully
functioning Zip Chunker.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
