Hello Daniel,

	No, he's saying using physfs that it will find it with PHYSFS_openRead, etc.

	It's only when adding files/dirs to the path that  you have to worry about the case of the zip file for example: file.zip != FILE.ZIP on Linux, but on Windows file.zip == FILE.ZIP

 P.S. This is what part of the alphabet would look like if Q & R were eliminated.
