    Hello Igor Pavlov.

    Question One :
    --------------
    Why 7za.exe cannot understand "Z" format ?
    the code for "Z" decoder is rather small,
    so 7za.exe should understand "Z" as "gz" and "bzip2".

    Question Two :
    --------------
    I am trying to port 7-zip415b for p7zip.

    But I cannot compile ZipHandler.cpp
    because it needs "../../Compress/Shrink/ShrinkDecoder.h"

    Where are the "Compress/Shrink" files ?

    Thank you.

      1) Probably I'll try it in next version
      2) It was my miss. I've updated source code at sf.net. Check it.

        Ok, now sources compile.

        But how can I do some tests with shrink in Zip ?

        7-zip do not provide Shrink compressor.

        How can I make Zip archives that use Shrink method ?

        Or where can I find Zip archives that use Shrink method ?

        Thank you.

          There was link at ZIP::Shrink message.
          It can create zip archive. But you must fix that archive with pkzip.
