ZIP_SOURCE_FILE(3)	 BSD Library Functions Manual	    ZIP_SOURCE_FILE(3)

NAME
     zip_source_file --	create data source from	a file

LIBRARY
     libzip (-lzip)

SYNOPSIS
     zip_source_t *
     zip_source_file(zip_t *archive, const char	*fname,	zip_uint64_t start,
	 zip_int64_t len);

     zip_source_t *
     zip_source_file_create(const char *fname, zip_uint64_t start,
	 zip_int64_t len, zip_error_t *error);

DESCRIPTION
     The functions zip_source_file() and zip_source_file_create() create a zip
     source from a file.  They open fname and read len bytes from offset start
     from it.  If len is 0 or -1, the whole file (starting from	start) is
     used.

     If	the file supports seek,	the source can be used to open a zip archive
     from.

     The file is opened	and read when the data from the	source is used,	usu-
     ally by zip_close() or zip_open_from_source().

RETURN VALUES
     Upon successful completion, the created source is returned.  Otherwise,
     NULL is returned and the error code in archive or error is	set to indi-
     cate the error.

ERRORS
     zip_source_file() and zip_source_file_create() fail if:

     [ZIP_ER_INVAL]	fname, start, or len are invalid.

     [ZIP_ER_MEMORY]	Required memory	could not be allocated.

     [ZIP_ER_OPEN]	Opening	fname failed.
