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

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.

The names of the files in the zipfile can also be changed in this way. This is done by following lines like

in the created temporary file (called foo.tmp here) with lines like

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.
