Zipix is a tool to set unix permissions in a zipfile. Specifically, it sets the execute bits on certain files so that cross-platform software with unix executables can be built on non-unix systems and extracted on unix systems without having to fix permissions.

All directories get drwxr-xr-x permissions, files matching any of a set of "executable patterns" get -rwxr-xr-x permissions, and other files get -rw-r--r-- permissions.


Works On My Machine(tm)

At the moment, I have an implementation of a subset of the documented zipfile format that successfully reads and writes the most common records headers and a set of record processors that will set the relevant unix permission header fields. This is wrapped up in a command line tool that will read a zipfile, process it, and write to a new file.


Zipix.exe -i -o --exec-suffix .x86 --exec-dir bin
