zipnote writes the comments in a zipfile to stdout. This is the default mode. A second mode allows updating the comments in a zipfile as well as allows changing the names of the files in the zipfile. These modes are described below.

To write all comments in a zipfile to stdout use for example
     zipnote > foo.tmp
This writes all comments in the zipfile to the file foo.tmp in a specific format.
If desired, this file can then be edited to change the comments and then used to update the zipfile.
     zipnote -w < foo.tmp
The names of the files in the zipfile can also be changed in this way. This is done by following lines like
     "@ name"
in the created temporary file (called foo.tmp here) with lines like
and then using the -w option as above.

The temporary file format is rather specific and zipnote is rather picky about it. It should be easier to change file names in a script.
Does not yet support large (> 2 GB) or split archives.
