ZIPDATE


ZIPDATE sets the date for .ZIP files to the latest file date and time in the
archive. This is useful because communications programs generally set a
downloaded file's date to the current date - you can't tell how old the archive
really is.

ZIPDATE syntax:

ZIPDATE [filespec] [filespec...]

Examples:

ZIPDATE PXREF.ZIP
Update the date and time in file PXREF.ZIP

ZIPDATE *.ZIP
Update the date and time in all .ZIP files on the current directory.

ZIPDATE *
Update the date and time in all .ZIP files on the current directory.

ZIPDATE D:
Update the date and time in all .ZIP files on the current directory
of drive D:.

ZIPDATE D:\SUBDIR\
Update the date and time in all .ZIP files on directory \SUBDIR
of drive D:.

ZIPDATE
You will be prompted for the name of the ZIP file(s).

ZIPDATE D:\SUBDIR\ A:
Update the date and time in all .ZIP files on directory \SUBDIR
of drive D: and on the current directory of drive A:.

ZIPDATE TEST D:TEST C:\
Update the date and time in the following .ZIP files:
TEST.ZIP
TEST.ZIP on drive D:
All .ZIP files on the main directory of drive C:

  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: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
