A utility to fix broken XMind files.
An XMind file is actually a ZIP archive containing multiple components. In some rare cases, e.g. a software crash occurs before XMind finishes saving the file, the ZIP format is broken and you will get a
java.util.zip.ZipException error when trying to open that file the next time. This tiny command line utility intends to fix this kind of 'broken files' and recover as much as possible contents inside those files.
