    Hi there,
    I'm curious to know if you can make an self extracting file through perl.
    I.e. Browser downloads zip file and it automatically unzips when download complete?

    If not how could I do this? Anyone know?

    Thanks,
    Clive.

    Not with perl. The download is a client-side action, only something like JavaScript could do that (and I'm not even sure it can).

    Thanks Ledjon,

    I've got a feeling I'm not going to be able to do this!
    Thanks for taking a look anyway!

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. If things like that where possible people would have viruses executing as soon as you hit their web page.
