zipnote(1)		    General Commands Manual		    zipnote(1)

NAME
       zipnote	-  write  the comments in zipfile to stdout, edit comments and
       rename files in zipfile

SYNOPSIS
       zipnote [-w] [-b	path] [-h] [-v]	[-L] zipfile

ARGUMENTS
       zipfile	Zipfile	to read	comments from or edit.

OPTIONS
       -w     Write comments to	a zipfile from stdin (see below).

       -b path
	      Use path for the temporary zip file.

       -h     Show a short help.

       -v     Show version information.

       -L     Show software license.

DESCRIPTION
       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.

EXAMPLES
       To write	all comments in	a zipfile to stdout use	for example

	    zipnote foo.zip > foo.tmp

       This  writes all	comments in the	zipfile	foo.zip	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.zip < 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
	    "@=newname"
       and then	using the -w option as above.

BUGS
       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.
