libzip: libzip(3)

NAME

libziplibrary for manipulating zip archives

LIBRARY

libzip (-lzip)

SYNOPSIS

#include <zip.h>

DESCRIPTION

libzip is a library for reading, creating, and modifying zip archives.
The main design criteria for libzip were:
  • Do not create corrupt files, even in case of errors.
  • Do not delete data.
  • Be efficient.
For this reason, when modifying zip archives, libzip writes to a temporary file and replaces the original zip archive atomically.
Below there are two sections listing functions: one for how to read from zip archives and one for how to create/modify them.
