Re: Canon should've used ZIP (about the only good cross platform solution)

Standard to you perhaps.

What platform are you using?

Has binaries for Amiga, VMS, various Unices and something called a "Macintosh" whatever that might be. I've used InfoZip under Linux, QNX and Windows myself...

There are no, AFAIK, ZIP utilities bundled with Windows, so it's not 'standard' to me either. I've never heard of the compression thingy Canon used, and had I used e.g. Linux or QNX it probably would've been an interesting exercise trying to figure out a way to decompress the thing.

ZIP utilities have been widely deployed since circa 1990.
