Forward slashes?

Hello,

Can anyone explain to me why, on a machine where Path.DirectorySeperatorChar is a backward slash ( \ ) the entry filenames are all sepperated with a forward slash ( / ) ?

The zip file specification, supplied by PKWare, states that separators within a zipfile are forward slashes.

That's why.

It shouldn't matter, though.  It should be of no concern for applications that use the library.
