Title: Nested zip supported?
Post by: jporkkahtc on September 26, 2017, 11:36:28 pm
So I can open files in an archive, "e C:\temp\foo.zip\MyFile.txt"

But, should nested ZIPs also work?
"e C:\temp\foo.zip\bar.zip\YourFile.txt"

Doesn't seem to.

Should this also work during a search?

It would be great for SlickEdit to support nested zip files. It's very hard to do. If it wasn't, it would have been done already. I've needed this feature. Maybe at some point we will have a go at this.

Maybe you could write a macro that fires up 7zip externally and recursively into a temporary folder, then let the user browse and open a file of their choice.  There's already plenty of file explorers that can do this so I'm not sure why slick needs to.  Much more important is allowing single click in the defs window and save restore of toolwindows...
Maybe SlickEdit could let people vote for the features they want...

Voting is a nice idea. It could happen in the future.

There’s often reengineering that needs to be done that no one will vote for.
