problems making zip with Archive::Zip

Hi,

I am having problems making a simple zip file using Archive::Zip.

I basically want to take some files and make a zip archive that can be
read by windoze.

Heres my code:
use Archive::Zip qw:)ERROR_CODES :CONSTANTS);

my $zip = Archive::Zip->new();
$zip->addFile('/home/eastmail/p.pdf');
$zip->writeToFileNamed( '/home/eastmail/oBoy.zip' );


when I run the script I get no errors and file '/home/eastmail/
oBoy.zip' is created but when I try to open on windows I get an error
that it is not a valid zip.

anybody have experience making zips in perl (the documentation on this
module is not so great).

"when I try to open on windows" is a rather inprecise description,
but I take a stab and guess you are talking of the Windows Explorer
built-in "Zip compressed folder". If that's the case, you are
likely having issues with unix file names and absolute paths.


You ROCK...I have been agonizing over this off and on for days...thank
you chris!
