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.
