.1 Extract into a folder witch is included 'extract.php' file contained folder, If give absolute or related single compressed file path only.

$result = $extract->extract('sample1.zip');  // related single compression file path.
$result = $extract->extract('E:\folder\sample2.zip');  // absolute single compression file path.

.2 Can give different location as absolute or related folder path to extract compressed files as a secondary parameter.

$result = $extract->extract('sample1.zip','E:\folder\sample2');  // extract into absolute folder path.
$result = $extract->extract('E:\folder\sample2.zip', 'sample2');  // extract into related folder path.

.3 Can give different compressed file paths at same time as path array to extract same folder.

$result = $extract->extract(array('sample2.zip','E:\sample3.zip'),'E:\folder\sample');  // extract into absolute folder path.

.4 By default, If extracted folder already exist before extraction. Sometimes same paths have been both files or sub-folders inside of compressed file and extracted folder, those files and sub-folders are overwrote. Copy some files and sub-folders into extracted folder, Those are not exist before extraction. Nothing happen to other files or sub-folders contain in extracted folder.

Mostly, it is not necessary. Much better way to clear extracted folder, If folder exist before extraction. Use third parameter as boolean true. Then every time only contain files or sub-folders witch were copied from compressed file into extracted folder.

$result = $extract->extract('E:\sample3.zip','E:\folder\sample',true);  // extract into absolute folder path.
