  • tar.gz creation with script

    Hi,

    I am trying to create both a .zip and tar.gz archives for use on windows and solaris respectively. The zip creation for windows works fine however, when the solaris script is executed, I receive this error...

    "<filename>.tar.gz does not appear to be a valid gzip archive"

    Has anyone seen this before and if so what is the resolution? Thanks!

    The current release, BC 2.4.3, can't create .tar.gz archive files. It can create .zip files. If a .tar.gz file already exists, BC can change its contents.

    I'll add this to our wish list for a future version.

    EDIT: It turns out BC2 cannot change or create .tar.gz files.

      Craig just corrected me. BC2 can create and edit zip files.

      It cannot create or edit .tar.gz files. BC2 can only open .tar.gz files read-only.
