Downloading multiple files from Server

I am using ASP.NET and i wish to push down
3 files (text/xml) from the server to the client. I wish to
give the user an option to select the folder in which
we wants these files to be dumped. Any idea how
can I download these files onto the client in one go?

Thanks

As a single ZIP file ? (could worth to see what happens if the content type
is gz, it seems I saw once it decompressed automatically the file)
Perhaps using a message layout format ?

In all of those cases, you actually send a single file that embeds these
files. Let us know if you find another solution.... (we'll have likely the
same requirements in one of your upcoming applications but I didn't find
better for now).

This is not possible as you can only send one item per request: html, file,
or image, but only one. There might be some active X controls that will
help you with this, but nothing that comes to mind.

I like the solution of zipping the three files.

Only marginally belonging in this newsgroup... but oh well. I've just started writing in python, and I want to make the files available on the web. So I did the standard <a href="mypath/myfile.py"> and not surprisingly, it displays like a webpage, but just the code. If I gzip it, and then link to the new file, it will download, but its so small I don't want it zipped. How can I make this into a downloadable file SIMPLY? The other...

Hello. I am wondering if there exists a piece of software that takes multiple .js files that are nicely indented and commented and create one big tightly packed .js file. I'm hoping the one file would be less of a burden for the user's browser to download. I guess the final code output by this hypothetical program could maybe even just be on one long line unless that would create problems. Maybe there is some kind of optimal line...
