Well.. I combined this with another script I've made earlier, and here's the result: download

Features:
- Creates separate archives of directories from the source dir
- Adds directory icons into the archives if found
- Handles spaces in dir names
- Progress output on the shell
- If there were errors while archiving, it informs on which dirs it happened
- Can be used with DOpus ("Execute S:archive_dirs.script {s} {d}", output to window)

Usage:
- Execute archive_dirs.script SOURCE DEST
- Important: DEST must end to : or /

Hope it doesn't contain much bugs :)

I'm a DOpus4 user myself and thought I'd point out a simpler method of accomplishing archiving seperate directories.
Oh, sure, I'm not saying I use the simplest approach .

One advantage of doing it via an ARexx script is that I can handle errors more nicely, or at least (as in this script) bail out in error situations before doing any actual work/damage.

Best regards,

Impressive stuff.

But I must admit I find it harder to read and understand what it does at a glance. than the ARexx approach. For me, that's preferable over a "clever" more convoluted solution.

A chacun son goût.
