    Tar and zipping

    I am posting it here too as I am not sure the forum where should post this.Sorry if it is wrong forum.

    hi,

    I have a tar.gz package of files that consists of php files.Now if i extract it through the winzip and modify a few files/ delete , I would like to make a tar.gz package back.I would like to know about the posibility.

    Is there any softwares that creates the tar.gz package from a folder specified.This software should be working in Windows OS.

    Thanking you in advance , I remain

    sincerely
    Harish Balakrishnan

    I think winzip reads and writes the tar.gz format.

    I am pretty sure Winace is capable of doing this. I personally use WinRar.
    Most of my questions/posts are fairly straightforward and simple. I post long verbose messages in an attempt to be thorough.
