I try to download the examplecode from the eBook "HTML5 Boilerplate Web Development".
The zip-file http://examples.oreilly.com/978184951... ist 257MB big and is very slowly loading. Once downloaded i can't unzip it. Here is what i get trying to unzip it:
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip: cannot find zipfile directory in one of 9781849518505_Code.zip or
9781849518505_Code.zip.zip, and cannot find 9781849518505_Code.zip.ZIP, period.
Could you please check if the zip-file on your server is correct?
Thanks in advance
With friendly regards.

Which unzipping utility are you using to unzip that .zip folder? I'm using WinRar and it worked for me without error. You may also try a good free one called 7-zip, which you can find here: http://www.7-zip.org/
If that doesn't work to extract the files, email me your address to email@example.com and I can put these files on a disc to ship to you.
Customer Service Rep,
That's great to hear. I suspect maybe that WInzip doesn't work on Linux, unless there is a version I'm not aware of. I think that Winzip is only for Mac or PC, and unsure as to the other ones. But if you were able to extract the files from the .zip folder it sounds like you're all set. I'm glad we could help! Enjoy the books!
