Hi zlibbers (especially Gilles),
The minizip library in contrib/minizip is very useful; thank you for
Various projects use it, mostly through embedded code copies:
- COLLADA DOM
- the Chromium browser
It is nice to see this code shared and used. The next step to
make distributors happier: I would like to see a method for building
minizip as a shared library similar to zlib’s usual configure script.
I would like to generalize from something like , just like zlib’s
Makefile is generalized from its Makefile.in.
Fedora already has minizip as a shared library, configured with
To that end, questions:
1. Is the latest version of the zlib configure script available
There has been a lot of development on list lately, and I do not
want to waste time coding around assumptions that no longer hold.
2. Would anyone else like to help work on this?
Looking forward to your thoughts,
