Linux & Win32 - Turn Webpages Into Mini Archives
« on: March 19, 2015, 04:01:36 AM »
WebpakMax is a GUI program that converts a webpage file
(an html file) and its associated support files into a mini
archive. WebpakMax is the first major program written with
the Shallizar Linux Runtime.

HOW TO USE IT

Start the program. Click the red WEBPAK FILE button.
Use the DialogFileOpen dialog window to select the webpage
you want to pak. The webpage and its files will be pakked,
and WebpakMax will display resulting file structure.

To pak all the webpages in a dir, click WEBPAK DIR.
The DialogFileOpen window will only show dirs. Click the
dir you want to pak. All the webpages in the first level
of that dir will be pakked (it is not recursive).

To unpak a webpak, click the blue open button, Select the
webpak to unpak. Its headers will be loaded and displayed.
Click EXTRACT ALL to recover the webpage and all its files.
You can also recover just the webpage, one of its dirs, or
individual support files.

WebpakMax FIXES ILLEGAL CHARACTERS IN Linux FILENAMES WHEN
IT MAKES A WEBPAK. THE RESULTING FILE CAN BE COPIED TO REMOVABLE
MEDIA AND THEN COPIED TO A Windows MACHINE.

There is a companion console version of the program called
Webpak that can be run in bash scripts. Handy for doing a
list of dirs.

The Win32 version of the program is written in Visual Basic(R) 6.
You need to have VB6 installed and running to compile the Win32
version.

All versions are at the same website:

WebpakMax is part of the NasmCollection tarball.

The Win32 version is seperate tarball.
