 NAME
      libzip - library for manipulating zip archives

 LIBRARY
      libzip (-lzip)

 SYNOPSIS
      #include <zip.h>

 DESCRIPTION
      libzip is a library for reading, creating, and modifying zip archives.

      The main design criteria for libzip were:
      +   Do not create corrupt files, even in case of errors.
      +   Do not delete data.
      +   Be efficient.

      For this reason, when modifying zip archives, libzip writes to a
      temporary file and replaces the original zip archive atomically.

      Below there are two sections listing functions: one for how to read
      from zip archives and one for how to create/modify them.
