ZIP_SOURCE(3) Library Functions Manual ZIP_SOURCE(3)


zip_sourcezip data source structure


libzip (-lzip)


#include <zip.h>

zip_source_t *zs;


A struct zip_source is a data source used by libzip(3) for adding or replacing file contents for a file in a zip archive. If the source supports seeking, it can also be used to open zip archives from. It is created by calling one of zip_source_buffer(3), zip_source_buffer_create(3), zip_source_file(3), zip_source_file_create(3), zip_source_filep(3), zip_source_filep_create(3), zip_source_function(3), zip_source_function_create(3), or zip_source_zip(3). zip_source_t is reference counted, and created with a reference count of 1. zip_open_from_source(3), zip_file_add(3), and zip_file_replace(3) will decrement the reference count of the zip_source_t when they are done using it, so zip_source_free(3) only needs to be called when these functions return an error. Use zip_source_keep(3) to increase the reference count, for example if you need the source after zip_close(3).
