Hi all !
I have a folder which contains several files and I want to compress those folder (with the files) using gzip. I wrote some lines of code which compressed and uncompressed a simple text file and it worked fine. It also compressed the folder with the files without grumbling.
But now I ask myself how to decompress that folder (and the files in it) again ?
Does it work with gzip ?
I don't have a clue ...
Thanx in advance!

Here, I already wrote a library of zip utilities using the built in zip functionality. Feel free to use it.

Thanx a lot Phil !
Your code works fine and does exactly what I was searching for.
Interim I took a look at some tutorials and determine that I was wrong from the outset. I was searchin for a way to solve my problem with gzip.
But now I know there apparently isn't.
Again: I'm very happy with YOUR solution and therefore I thank you very much !
Best regards,
