zipnote

write the comments in zipfile to stdout, edit comments and rename files in zipfile 

Command


SYNOPSIS

zipnote [-w] [-b path] [-h] [-v] [-L] zipfile


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.

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.

-L 

Show software license.


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.
