Subject Re: Zip format problem
Date Sun, 04 Oct 2009 16:52:16 GMT

I think you are right as the Zip API is not separate it makes sense to 
use only one DSL function. The question is then of course how would you 
name it?

Would you rather name the operation split(Zip) or decompress(Zip)? If 
the operation was named decompress the tar.gz example could be done like 
and zip would simply look like decompress(Zip)

Btw. In our scenario we had the requirement that the files from the zip 
had to be processed in a certain order. In our case the processing 
should be done in order of the filenames.
Any idea how this could be expressed?
