compiler export question

06 Jan 2011

Program export using Windows creates a zip file while using Mac OS X create a complete directory tree. Could somebody be so kind and explain this to me ?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Voy Ager,

In both cases the website is returning a .zip file to the browser, as that is how the export mechanism works. In windows, the browser will simply save this as a zipfile, whereas a Mac will automatically (helpfully?) unzip the file when it is downloaded.

This is a feature of Safari, details on how to stop it happening can be found here :

Hope this helps, Chris
