Subject [GitHub] commons-compress issue #24: COMPRESS-391: Allow alignment on zip content
Date Fri, 05 May 2017 09:37:42 GMT
Github user bodewig commented on the issue:
    Many thanks @kvr000 
    Have you thought about adding a class implementing `ZipExtraField` for padding? You could
add that to the entry if you detect padding is necessary and could remove code that now needs
to know about the encoding of extra fields from `ZipArchiveOutputStream`. The central directory
size should be 0 then.
    It would also preserve the padding information when an archive is read which may be useful
when re-packing existing entries as you could strip or modify the padding extra field directly.
    Finally I wonder whether `setAlignment` should reject values bigger than 64k right away.
