Again: that's clear.
But... there's something that helped me: zipfile class in Python. Currently
there will be bundled two versions of the script:
- first: uses the zipfile
- second: uses the tar ang gzip programs, but doesn't come with them. There
is a link to cygwin.com, where both programs can be downloaded.
I think that the second solution is better.
