I've been thinking of extending the plugins updater here (http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/65599194/html/Plugins_Updater_plugin.html) so that it will be able to decompress .zip files but I'm not sure which of the many decompression libraries out there I should use. Anyone has a suggestion on a library to look at - I would only need to decompress the .zip files, and the libraries that I've found are pretty complex and sadly way over my head :(.

There is a Lua decompression function:


That doesn't exactly do .zip files, but it is lets you decompress stuff.

Thanks Fiendish for the suggestion - managed to add support for dozens of compressed archive formats using 7zip fairly easily.
