Subject: extractMembers failing across fork on Windows
Calling extractTree in the child 'process' - which is obtained after doing a 'fork', doesn't work in Windows XP. It does work if no fork business is happening so something special with the fork semantics on Windows (it's really a thread - not a process).
Subject: unzip_fork.pl
use strict; use Archive::Zip qw(:ERROR_CODES); my $child = fork(); if ($child == 0) { my $path = q[c:/temp/raw-data/one-hundred-claims.zip]; chdir (q[c:/temp]); my $z = Archive::Zip->new; die "failed to read\n" unless $z->read($path) == AZ_OK; die "failed to extract\n" unless AZ_OK == $z->extractTree(); exit; }
