	The zzip_entry_findfile	function is given a filename as	an additional
       argument, to find the disk_entry	matching a given filename. The
       compare-function	is usually strcmp or strcasecmp	or perhaps strcoll, if
       null then strcmp	is used. - use null as argument	for "old"-entry	when
       searching the first matching entry, otherwise the last returned value
       if you look for other entries with a special "compare" function (if
       null then a doubled search is rather useless with this variant of
       _findfile). If no further entry is found	then null is returned and any
       "old"-entry gets	already	free()d.

	The zzip_entry_findfirst function is the first call of all the zip
       access functions	here. It contains the code to find the first entry of
       the zip central directory. Here we require the stdio handle to
       represent a real	zip file where the disk_trailer	is _last_ in the file
       area, so	that its position would	be at a	fixed offset from the end of
       the file	area if	not for	the comment field allowed to be	of variable
       length (which needs us to do a little search for	the disk_tailer).
       However,	in this	simple implementation we disregard any disk_trailer
       info telling about multidisk archives, so we just return	a pointer to
       the first entry in the zip central directory of that file.

	For an actual means, we	are going to search backwards from the end of
       the mmaped block	looking	for the	PK-magic signature of a	disk_trailer.
       If we see one then we check the rootseek	value to find the first
       disk_entry of the root central directory. If we find the	correct	PK-
       magic signature of a disk_entry over there then we assume we are	done
       and we are going	to return a pointer to that label.

	The return value is a pointer to the first zzip_disk_entry being
       checked to be within the	bounds of the file area	specified by the
       arguments. If no	disk_trailer was found then null is returned, and
       likewise	we only	accept a disk_trailer with a seekvalue that points to
       a disk_entry and	both parts have	valid PK-magic parts. Beyond some
       sanity check we try to catch a common brokeness with zip	archives that
       still allows us to find the start of the	zip central directory.

       The zzip_entry_findfirst	function Returns null on error (errno =

	The zzip_entry_findnext	function takes an existing "entry" in the
       central root directory (e.g. from zzip_entry_findfirst) and moves it to
       point to	the next entry.	On error it returns 0, otherwise the old
       entry. If no further match is found then	null is	returned and the entry
       already free()d.	If you want to stop searching for matches before that
       case then please	call zzip_entry_free on	the cursor struct ZZIP_ENTRY.

	the zzip_entry_free function releases the malloc()ed areas needed for
       zzip_entry, the pointer is invalid afterwards. The zzip_entry_free
       function	has #define synonyms of	zzip_entry_findlast(),
       zzip_entry_findlastfile(), zzip_entry_findlastmatch()

	The zzip_entry_findmatch function uses a compare-function with an
       additional argument and it is called just like fnmatch(3) from POSIX.2
       AD:1993), i.e. the argument filespec first and the ziplocal filename
       second with the integer-flags put in as third to	the indirect call. If
       the platform has	fnmatch	available then null-compare will use that one
       and otherwise we	fall back to mere strcmp, so if	you need fnmatch
       searching then please provide an	implementation somewhere else. - use
       null as argument	for "after"-entry when searching the first matching
       entry, or the last disk_entry return-value to find the next entry
       matching	the given filespec. If no further entry	is found then null is
       returned	and any	"old"-entry gets already free()d.
