Unicode zipping from Python code?

Hi!

As I experienced in the year 2006, the Python's zip module is not
unicode-safe.
With the hungarian filenames I got wrong result.
I need to convert iso-8859-2 to cp852 chset to get good result.
As I see, this module is "a command line tool" imported as extension.

Now I search for something that can handle the characters good, or
handle the unicode filenames.

Does anyone knows about a python project that can do this?
Or other tool what I can use for zipping intern. characters?

Thanks for your help!

I'd rather say unicode file names are not supported. Why? Because zip
format didn't support unicode file names upto 2006.
With the hungarian filenames I got wrong result.

So you solved the problem, didn't you?

You said you've got good result, so it's not clear what do you want.

Zipping is only half of the problem. How are you going to unzip such
files?

Hi, For the first time in my programmer life, I have to take care of character encoding. I have a question about the BOM marks. If I understand well, into the UTF-8 unicode binary representation, some systems add at the beginning of the file a BOM mark (Windows?), some don't. (Linux?). Therefore, the exact same text encoded in the same UTF-8 will result in two different binary files, and of a slightly different length. Right ?

python-dev@python.org.] The PEP has been rewritten based on a suggestion by Guido to change str() rather than adding a new built-in function. Based on my testing, I believe the idea is feasible.

I'm an indie shareware Windows game developer. In indie shareware game development, download size is terribly important; conventional wisdom holds that--even today--your download should be 5MB or less. I'd like to use Python in my games. However, python24.dll is 1.86MB, and zips down to 877k. I can't afford to devote 1/6 of my download to just the scripting interpreter; I've got music, and textures, and my own crappy code to ship. ...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
