I have observed that using Perl Archive::Zip library in Unix, it round down the original file Modify date to lower even-seconds. Verified from information from another forum user and testing. Whether this is to mimick windows timestamp, it is not desirable. It is not the case when tested using Windows GUI or Unix prompt to zip file, it does not modify the original Modify date of the file. The Zip (file format) <> uses FAT timestamps which only have a resolution of two seconds.
