• Archive.extract() with ma

    Hi DM,

    Today I was using the Archive class to extract exactly one file from a zip file, and I'm a little confused on the exception throwing behavior regarding the max_files parameter. When calling extract(), I gave it a filename pattern and expected exactly 1 file to be extracted, so I also gave a max_files argument as 1. It extracted the one file, but it threw an exception with the error "Error: maximum number of files (1) extracted (after extracting 1 item successfully)".

    Should that be an error condition to throw an exception? I expected 1 file to be extracted, and that file was extracted successfully. If I specify max_files as 2, then it doesn't throw an exception.

    I can see how that would be surprising behavior. I just committed a change. Let me know how that works for you.

    I've updated, and now it doesn't throw an exception for this case. Thanks.
