LIBZIP(3)		 BSD Library Functions Manual		     LIBZIP(3)

NAME
     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:
     +o	 Do not	create corrupt files, even in case of errors.
     +o	 Do not	delete data.
     +o	 Be efficient.

     For this reason, when modifying zip archives, libzip writes to a tempo-
     rary 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.
