> ---- Compress: ----
> When you hit Ctrl-F5 to compress tagged files, ZTree takes the first
> entry ('control block') for compressing.
> So you should put these new 'control blocks' _before_ the other
> control blocks in Archiver.bb2.
> [ In case you entered a destination file including the desired
> extension, e.g. path\file.zip, ZTree offers only those entries
> that match the 2nd line in the control block ('Normal extension for
> archives'). ]

> Choice prompt:
> Within Ctl-F5 command prompt, after destination file and ENTER, you can
> chose which of the possible entries ZTree uses for compressing, by
> hitting A or Shift-A:
> Archiver: 7-Zip 9.20 for .ZIP [LFNU
> NAP] or after hitting 'A' , e.g. here:
> Archiver: PowerArchiver Command Line
> 4.01 [LFN,EXT]
>
> ---- Decompress: ----
> When you hit Alt-F5 on a compressed or .exe file,
> ZTree takes the first entry ('control block') that matches the
> signature (see 3rd and 14th line in the control block) to decompress the
> file.
> Note:
> ZTree informs the user which entry it uses for decompressing:
> The 3rd line in the Menu/command area at bottom shows , e.g. here:
> 7-Zip 9.20 for .ZIP [LFNU
> NAP]

> Hope that helps
