Pinch me; some crazy HTTP ZIP magic Jump to Story

It's not often a necessity, but if you find yourself needing to download a single file out of a zip archive which is stored remotely (yeah, I know, but wait...), then Pinch by Peter Hellberg and Edward Patel is just what you need. It exploits HTTP 1.1's range requests to extract just the single file that you need directly out of the ZIP archive without transferring the entire thing across the network. Pretty neat.
