FilePaths

Hi.

I would like to make a suggestion for an improvement.

Zip utilities usually have an option for file paths which are:
i) For Zip operation:
  1. Store absolute paths
  2. Store relative paths (default)
  3. Do Not Store Paths
ii) For Unzip operation
  1. Extract absolute paths
  2. Extract relative paths (default)
  3. Do not extract paths
Specially for unzip operations I believe this option is useful.

I'm working on a project where i download a bunch of zipped files from a file share and then i have to unzip all of them and import the unzipped files to a table in a database.

The issue is that the file inside the zip file have an endless directory structure (5 levels deep)
So I end up with a directory structure like \hostname\sharedfolder\extractpath\pathoffilesinzip\file

Extracting the files with the option "Do not extract paths" would make the process much more easier.

Hope you like the suggestion and consider include it on a next release
