Hi Maury,

If you're looking for an unzipping library, this one looks pretty easy to use (and is available via NuGet):

There's also a list of alternatives on that page.

Best wishes,

Jeff Bonhag

Wow, fantastic answer!

The problem with Gembox (et al) is that they are Windows only (???) and the target of this effort is ultimately the iPad. The iPad has a grid view I can use, so I'm concentrating on the data side of things.

So if Packaging is likely out, perhaps there is another solution to that problem? The real goal here is to open the XLSX - which is just a zip file full of XMLs - and then iterate over them one by one. These are potentially recursive (and are in the case of XLSX),

So does anyone know of a PCL/Mono compatible ZIP library along those lines?
