I am working on a project that involves zipping up text files on
Solaris 9 using Zip 2.3 and sending them over to an OS/390. I don't
work on the 390 so all the information I get is from a third party.
Anyway they are telling me that once they get the file we zip up they
cannot open it. They are using a utility called InfoZip and it claims
it is not a valid zip file. My first response was to ask them to try
another unzip, so they took the file off their 390 and tried Winzip;
I wondered if maybe there was a problem with the transfer, so I copied
a zip over to the 390 then back to the Solaris box. I was able to
unzip it with no problems. Then I pulled it down to a Win desktop and
used Winzip; still all good. But if they email me back the same zip
file that I was able to unzip before they got a hold of it, I can't
unzip it either.
Am I missing something simple here? I ran a chksum on the file before
I transferred it and after and the numbers are identical.
Anyone have experience with Solaris - 390 and how each handles zip
