Meeting Reports:

  • May 2000 Layman Forum

In May Layman's Forum we discussed ZIP Files, WinZip, AZZ Cardfile. The discussion was requested from the attendance.

  1. We defined what are ZIP and compression files. Created a ZIP file in which files were added and moved into the ZIP file. Files were then extracted from the ZIP file.
  2. Used WinZip when working with ZIP files. Briefly covered some of its features such as giving graphic from MIME file that may be received from your email. Also covered configuring WinZip to your personal preference.
  3. Demonstrated AZZ cardfile program with obtaining information from a Web page and copying it into a AZZ cardfile for easy cataloging information. AZZ files created by Matt Skoda were demonstrated.
