Long file names on OS9 (2 posts)

Does Fetch 4.0.3 support long filenames over 31 characters on Mac OS9.1 ?
I can see these extra long file names on my Mac using ZipIt 2.2 but as soon as they are unzipped they get truncated and shortened.
I am having to trawl through all the php files that make up the programs and updates and put them right. Its driving me mad
Anyone have any clue on how I can get over this?

Fetch supports long file names wherever the OS supports them, i.e. on Mac OS 9 and later, on Mac OS Extended volumes. It sounds like that version of ZipIt does not support long file names. You might try expanding the files with StuffIt Expander 7 (available from http://www.stuffit.com) or some other tool.
Note that you won't be able to see long file names in the Finder on Mac OS 9.
