libzip — library 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.
