Archive Zip Module

Hi

I am using the archive zip module too view whats inside zip files. Using this code:

 use Archive::Zip;
use Archive::Zip::MemberRead;

  $zip = new Archive::Zip("testdate.zip");
  $fh  = new Archive::Zip::MemberRead($zip, "testdate.txt");
  while (defined($line = $fh->getline()))
  {
      print $fh->input_line_number . "#: $line\n";
  }  $read = $fh->read($buffer, 32*1024);
  print "Read $read bytes as :$buffer:\n";

Though if the file is not my sever, but another address example
  $zip = new Archive::Zip("http://www.xx.com/test/testdate.zip");

Then it does'nt work!, anyone know how to get it get to work?

Thanks

Akbar

Archive::Zip works with files, not URI's, so you need to download the zip file first, eg:

use LWP::Simple;
getstore('http://www.xx.com/test/testdate.zip','/some/path/testdate.zip');
