Hi there,

I've downloaded the latest compiled version (2006-01-24 17:01:07) of php_zip.dll  for my PHP version (5.1.2) in the PECL4WIN section here:

The extension seems to be loaded (php_info() return a zip section with "zip enabled"), but the zip functions aren't available.

Reproduce code:
$zip = zip_open(ZIP_FILE_ABSOLUTE_PATH);
    echo "Zip open";
    echo "Error";

Expected result:
"Zip open" (if the path is correct)

Actual result:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function zip_open() in C:\Server\www\prof\fairy\test.php on line 1

With the PHP 5.1.1 version of php_zip.dll, everything is working.

(I have of course correctly uncomment the extension line in php.ini too)

In addition to saying "me too" - We'd love to see a fix since 
we can't resolve this security issue --->  http://

without the loss of zip facilities.

5.1.2 snapshot dlls contain the current Zip CVS. The CVS version is a complete rewrite, it adds write support and an OO interface. It is not yet compatible with the old version.

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PECL itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PECL, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PECL.

bogus it as it not a pecl/zip bug per se.

For the record, the old API has been added in the last release (1.1.0-alpha).

The dll should be available soon.

Is this function supporting only absolute urls/filepaths, as this is going to be frustrating!!

Use the new API then,
