ZIP Source Identifier (PKWARE):
Pending proposal to include a new source identifier record at the front of .ZIP files. This new data structure will serve to differentiate between vendor applications that create/modify ZIP files. Modeled after extra field structures this record would likely include:
Marker - 4 bytes TDB
Size - size of remaining record
Data - vendor defined information structure
Problem to solve: a number of ZIP users look for readily available information on what (application/vendor etc) created a given file to assist with feature support determination with less record parsing.
