| Dear all,
| Are there any utility that can be call by python to create self
| extracting zip file. I'm now using the powerarchiever. But the command
| line options aren't flexible enough. Basically, I would like to create a
| self extracting zip with default file path extraction and force
| over-write. The powerArchiever just don't let me call it unless I'm
| using the GUI.
| Any idea, experience and suggestion are welcome.
| Thank you.

I use MakeSfx aka FreeExtractor ( drive it with
Python. The command line options is flexible (enough), it's free, and it's
open source...
