This is libzip, a C library for reading, creating, and modifying zip and zip64 archives. Files can be added from data buffers, files, or compressed data copied directly from other zip archives. Changes made without closing the archive can be reverted. Decryption and encryption of Winzip AES and legacy PKware encrypted files is supported.

libzip is fully documented via man pages. HTML versions of the man pages are on and in the man directory. You can start with libzip(3), which lists all others. Example source code is in the examples and src subdirectories.

See the file for installation instructions and dependencies.

If you have developed an application using libzip, you can find out about API changes and how to adapt your code for them in the included file
