hurray for lha

Well I eventually found the duo of LHA and Twin Express. Just that I was new to this kind of thing.

Incase anyone else should read this post and be a little new or confused, not all zip/crunch programs out there on the pc handle lha to crunch, only to uncrunch.

I found WinAce to be one of the few that will archive any files in lha/lzh and then simply port the zipped file over to my amiga using Twin Express, then LHA to unzip onto my amiga hd with the long file names intact, even though Twin Express in pc dos can shorten the zip filename if it's too long eg thisisal~1.lzh the files inside the zip remain fine and with long names intact when unzipped on the amiga.

Thanks guys, have a couple more problems, but they need different threads. If there were such a thing as a virtual round of beers It would be my round. Been a while since I used any Amiga system.
