Hi Gents and Ladies,

I was hoping someone could show me by an example, how to uncompress a file prgrammatically so I can read in the text file, edit it and then (show me also) how to compress it back to a zipped archive file etc.

Let me please thank you in advance for your help.

Best - Dyno

You can use the open source ICSharpZip library.

http://www.icsharpcode.net/OpenSource/SharpZipLib/Download.aspx

Uncompress to a folder:
FastZip objFastZip = new FastZip();

objFastZip.ExtractZip("yourzipfile.zip", @"C:\uncompressfolder\", null);

Open in new window


Compress folder to zip:
FastZip objFastZip = new FastZip();

objFastZip.CreateZip("yournewzipfile.zip", @"C:\uncompressfolder\", true, null);

Open in new window


There are other options, but this is basic usage.

I hope this helps.
