ZIP - UNIX or Windows?

Are ZIP files to be UNIX ZIP or Windows ZIP? 
 
Thanks
Lee

Hi Lee,

 

ZIP files can be opened in both UNIX and Windows. Creating ZIP files in UNIX may differ from Windows and you may want to seek your IT department’s help for this.

 

Best regards

I am the IT person who will perform the file zip and I plan to use the UNIX ZIP command to zip the files.  I just want to be sure that there will not be a problem for SIS to unzip the files.
Thanks

Hi Lee,

 

There should not be a problem for Zip files created by UNIX to be sent to SIS. An additional note: return carriages in UNIX are one-byte (as opposed to two-byte characters in Windows), so text files might look slightly different if you open a UNIX text file.

 

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Ashley

Hi Lee,

Following my last post, if you could provide us a Unix sample zip file, we could then further investigate and let you know if the Unix one-byte carriage returns are handled by the SIS import components.

Thanks and best regards,

Ashley

Ashley, what email address should I send a UNIX ZIP file?
What type of server and OS will perform the processing?
Thanks
Lee

Hi Lee,

 

It would be Windows 2008, and please send the file to sis@iata.org.

 

Regards,

Ashley

Hi Lee,

 

We have analysed the sample file you sent and it seems like you are using some non-standard compression different from deflate32. Please make sure you use deflate32 otherwise you would run into problems with the file in Windows.

 

Regards,

Ashley
