Automatic zip and transfer file

A lot of times I have to transfer dll files or text files by ftp and, when i remember, I have to zip them with other programs in order to save a lot of space, and after send them with FileZilla.
I think that it could be nice, if you can add a feature, where you can select some files to transfer and the program make a zip with inside that files and transfer only that zip file

Thank you

Hi, can we use boost library for zipping the files and then transferring the same file to the server.

I am interested to work on implementing this feature in filezilla

FileZilla should not implement something like that. After all, it is a file transfer program. If you want to create an archive, let it be zip, tar, bz2, gzip, rar, 7z or whatever, simply use that appropriate program.


Did you already finish your patch for #8100?

Hi, That ticket has been closed a long back.

Well, technically yes, but only because it was a duplicate of #1749 - which still is open.
