In what way is the file's architecture likely to get compromised when an archive is uncompressed?
It appears a lot of servers, read most, don’t recognise the unzip command which I think was ‘[directories]
’ in PKZIP type command line format which requested the architecture was maintained. Unzipping on the server can end up with a ‘flat’ layout because of that. Most OS’s these days package zip/unzip that follow the PK rules and work seamlessly, unfortunately servers havn’t caught up yet.
