zip_fopen, zip_fopen_index — open file in zip archive for reading

Library

libzip (-lzip)

Synopsis

#include <zip.h>

zip_file_t *

zip_fopen(zip_t *archive, const char *fname, zip_flags_t flags);

zip_file_t *

zip_fopen_index(zip_t *archive, zip_uint64_t index, zip_flags_t flags);

Description

The zip_fopen() function opens the file name fname in archive. The flags argument specifies how the name lookup should be done, according to the values are described in zip_name_locate(3). Also, the following values may be or'ed to it.

ZIP_FL_COMPRESSED
Read the compressed data. Otherwise the data is uncompressed by zip_fread().
ZIP_FL_UNCHANGED
Read the original data from the zip archive, ignoring any changes made to the file.

The zip_fopen_index() function opens the file at position index.

If encrypted data is encountered, the functions call zip_fopen_encrypted(3) or zip_fopen_index_encrypted(3) respectively, using the default password set with zip_set_default_password(3).

Return Values

Upon successful completion, a struct zip_file pointer is returned. Otherwise, NULL is returned and the error code in archive is set to indicate the error.

Errors

[ZIP_ER_CHANGED]
The file data has been changed.
[ZIP_ER_COMPNOTSUPP]
The compression method used is not supported.
[ZIP_ER_ENCRNOTSUPP]
