zzip_read - Man Page

read data.


#include <zzip/lib.h>

zzip_read(ZZIP_FILE * fp, void *buf, zzip_size_t len)

zzip_fread(void *ptr, zzip_size_t size, zzip_size_t nmemb, ZZIP_FILE * file)


The zzip_read function will read(2) data from a real/zipped file.

The zzip_read function is the replacement for read(2) will fill the given buffer with bytes from the opened file. It will return the number of bytes read, so if the EOF is encountered you will be prompted with the number of bytes actually read.

If the file-handle is wrapping a stat'able file then it will actually just perform a normal read(2)-call, otherwise zzip_file_read is called to decompress the data stream and any error is mapped to errno(3).
