Subject Re: [COMPRESS] Add getArchiveType() method to [Archive|Compressor]InputStream classes?
Date Tue, 11 May 2010 19:04:17 GMT
In the code we call it "Archivername". That should be changed
accordingly to "type" then IMO. (getArchiveName() could be a little
ambiguous)

That said: Is there a particular reason you need this? Or is this just
because you think it might be useful?
