Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Epub3 - zip, or not ?

"zip" is the Info-zip program to create and manipulate zip files.

I know that (and I already knew it), but ....

note to the maintainers of the documentation - please state it explicitly; as I indicated I got the "'zip' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." message as it isn't a standard operating system file.  Someone reading this who isn't a developer may not know what's meant.

Also please add a note to the effect that its folder *must* be in your path.  Just adding a symbol pointing to zip.exe is not sufficient.  Presumably there is something else important in the folder.

How far do you take this Kerry? Insist that java be on the $PATH? That permissions be set for local directories?

There has to be a break point somewhere.
"it isn't a standard operating system file." It is, on my Operating System? Shades of grey everywhere?
