 Archive::Zip 1.03 released to CPAN

Archive::Zip version 1.03 has been released.

This is a bug fix version to fix compatibility with Perl 5.005
and platforms that have "volume names". It adds no new functionality
over 1.02, but if you have a non-Unix system, or a 5.005 Perl, you
probably want to get this.

>From the README:

The Archive::Zip module allows a Perl program to create, manipulate,
read, and write Zip archive files.

Zip archives can be created, or you can read from existing zip files
or strings (using IO::Scalar). Once created, they can be written to
files, streams, or strings.

Members can be added, removed, extracted, replaced, rearranged, and
enumerated.  They can also be renamed or have their dates, comments, or
other attributes queried or modified.  Their data can be compressed or
uncompressed as needed.  Members can be created from members in existing
Zip files, or from existing directories, files, or strings.
Directory trees can be added or extracted simply using special tree

This module uses the Compress::Zlib library to read and write the
compressed streams inside the files. Note that versions of Compress::Zlib
prior to 1.06 truncate data and should not be used.

Compress::Zlib prior to 1.08 caused crashes on some Windows systems.

Examples and helper libraries are given to show how:
  * zip files can be read and written to strings
  * zip files can be written in chunks to arbitrary functions
