ZZIP Referentials Where is it used.
The GPL/LGPL do not have a clause like MPL and others to notify the
original author about certain usages of the library - that's a pity
since I do not get to know many of the areas where zziplib has come
to be used. I can only ask you to send me an e-mail, so I can put a
link from here to your project. Within thousands of downloads less
than a handful of people wrote to me - mostly for having found a bug
or having a feature request. Be nice, and write even if you have had
successfully implanted zziplib in your project... I love to hear that ;-)
Although the library has not been written focusing on game data,
it has it greatest success just there. The SDL-rwops example did
further it by great amounts, people just like it to have the
thousand of small bitmaps to be assembled into one big dat file,
and put the AI scripts just next to them.
Here the most important feature has been the smalls size of this
library and the possible to use its autoconf script and even for
those who don't, it is easy to make a custom configuration. The
source code is easy to understand and therefore to customize for
the needs of the app/lib that wants to use the functionality.
For commercial usage, you can bind many small files into a zip
file for easier handling. Obfuscation and io-wrapping help
greatly to implant it in areas even far from posix-io grounds.
