python zipfile v. native unzip

J

Jason Friedman

Does Python 2.7's zipfile module use its own algorithm or does it
leverage the zip/unzip libraries that exist on the host? I ask
because my host's native unzip program cannot handle files that, when
unzipped, are larger than 2GB. Will using Python 2.7 get around this
limitation?
