Zip archiver tool which can zip many revisions of a file?

Hello,

I'm looking for an zip/archive tool, which can zip many revisions of
one file.

For example:
I create a word-document abc.doc an save it an zip it
Nex day I add something to the document, save it an zip it (the
filename still ist abc.doc!)

What I want is, that I now have 2 versions of this document stored in
my zip archive (both having the same name abc.doc)
It should be possibe to extract any stored version of this document.
The selection, which revision to extract, should be done by date/time.

Do you know a zip archiver which includes this feature?

Many thanks for any hint.
Regards
Hans

You are not looking for and archiver, but for a backup tool, one that can
back-up predefined files and create folders from date. Have a look at some
backup freeware, I think you will find what you are looking for.

You can no more save 2 copies of the same filename in a zip file than
you can save them in a folder. You can produce a difference file
(look for utilities named diff and ssed) or you can use a version
control system. Or you can just make a folder with the date as a
name, put that day's file in that folder and save the folder in the
zip file with path information. Then move the file back.

You are looking for a "version control system"
E.g. RCS or subversion

Yes, you are looking version control system.
Since im user of ClearCase.. I wrote a simple tool for 'checkin'
a file to create a version from it... checkin.exe integrates with
Explorer so you have Check In in right click menu. History is generated
from newest (1) to oldest (9). Tool will push versions up
so 1 -> 2, 2 -> 3, ... , 9 is deleted. and file -> file.1.

ci is a wrapper for cygwin bash.

Example:

# ls checkin.c*
checkin.c
# ci -f checkin.c
ci: File 'checkin.c' checked in
# ls checkin.c*
checkin.c checkin.c.1
# ci -f checkin.c
ci: File 'checkin.c' checked in
# ls checkin.c*
checkin.c checkin.c.1 checkin.c.2

You can download both sources and Win32 compiled from
ftp://ftp.benet.uu3.net/pub/tools/checkin/

Try the freeware `keepit'. It is specifically designed to archive and
restore several versions of the same document. Like version control
systems, it archives each new version by archiving only what was added,
deleted, or changed.
