digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 2138] New: Allow more than 65535 files in Zip archives


           Summary: Allow more than 65535 files in Zip archives

        OS/Version: Windows

It has come to my attention that std.zip can only read Zip files with <= 65535
files.  I understand that this is an inherent limitation of older versions of
the Zip file format.  

This is becoming a significant limitation for me, as I am trying to do a
cluster computing project with a very large data set composed of 10s of
thousands of very small files that would bog down the file system if used in
unzipped form.
