Description: Archive.pl is an ini driven archive program that takes programs in a current directory and archives them.
I wrote this to get rid of manual archiving of files.
I use pkzip25 but change it to what ever you need.

To learn how to use this program do archive.pl -help

To set up your archive directory use archive.pl -make It asks for archive source, destination, and many other options see help.
It then creates the destination and puts a directory with the format of YyyyyMmm.
Then it zips up the directory and puts in the the above folder with the format of DddHhhmi.zip

This program tracks the following.

  • Monthly history of change in history.txt in the year month directory
  • Inside the zip it has a archive.txt  with the changes in the current zip since the zip before.
BTW: I don't think this would be too hard to port to UNIX.
#---------------------------------------------------------------------
+-------------
#    ARCHIVE.PL
#
#    Upon execution it looks for the archive.ini in the local director
+y or argv0 directory
#    It reads in the ini file and determins by it how to archive the d
+irectory.
#
#---------------------------------------------------------------------
+-------------
#    Use this to archive program directorys and know what has changed
#    Then zip the directory up.
