SYNOPSIS


.In zip.h zip_t * zip_open const char *path int flags int *errorp zip_t * zip_open_from_source zip_source_t *zs int flags zip_error_t *ze

DESCRIPTION

The zip_open function opens the zip archive specified by path and returns a pointer to a struct zip, used to manipulate the archive. The flags are specified by or ’ing the following values, or 0 for none of them.
ZIP_CHECKCONS Perform additional stricter consistency checks on the archive, and error if they fail.
ZIP_CREATE Create the archive if it does not exist.
ZIP_EXCL Error if archive already exists.
ZIP_TRUNCATE If archive exists, ignore its current contents. In other words, handle it the same way as an empty archive.
ZIP_RDONLY Open archive in read-only mode.

If an error occurs and errorp is non- NULL, it will be set to the corresponding error code.

The zip_open_from_source function opens a zip archive encapsulated by the zip_source zs using the provided flags. In case of error, the zip_error ze is filled in.

RETURN VALUES

Upon successful completion zip_open and zip_open_from_source return a struct zip pointer. Otherwise, NULL is returned and zip_open sets *errorp to indicate the error, while zip_open_from source sets ze to indicate the error.

ERRORS

The archive specified by path is opened unless:
[ZIP_ER_EXISTS]
  The file specified by path exists and ZIP_EXCL is set.
[ZIP_ER_INCONS]
  Inconsistencies were found in the file specified by path. This error is often caused by specifying ZIP_CHECKCONS but can also happen without it.
[ZIP_ER_INVAL]
  The path argument is NULL.
[ZIP_ER_MEMORY]
  Required memory could not be allocated.
[ZIP_ER_NOENT]
  The file specified by path does not exist and ZIP_CREATE is not set.
[ZIP_ER_NOZIP]
  The file specified by path is not a zip archive.
[ZIP_ER_OPEN]
  The file specified by path could not be opened.
[ZIP_ER_READ]
  A read error occurred; see errno for details.
[ZIP_ER_SEEK]
  The file specified by path does not allow seeks.
