Hi all,

I'm in need of a Mac zip app which allows me to compress files within a zip folder to different degrees - specifically, I need to leave one file uncompressed while two folders within it are both compressed (it's for an ePub file). I've previously done this (on Windows) by creating a zip archive of that single file without any compression, then adding the two folders to that archive and compressing them.

7zip does this on Windows, frinstance, but I haven't been able to find an option for the Mac. Does anyone have any suggestions???

Cheers,

Steve

In case anyone stumbles across this thread looking to solve the same problem, get yerself to ePub Zip for Mac OS X - MobileRead Forums where all your problems will be solved - two little apps that dismantle epubs and put them together. Sweet as, bro.

The command line bzip2 allows you to specify compression levels too.
