zip_source_filep(3) create data source from FILE *


libzip (-lzip)

zip_source_filep(zip_t *archive, FILE *file, zip_uint64_t start, zip_int64_t len);

zip_source_filep(FILE *file, zip_uint64_t start, zip_int64_t len, zip_error_t *error);


The functions zip_source_filep() and zip_source_filep_create() create a zip source from a file stream. They read len bytes from offset start from the open file stream file. If len is 0 or -1, the whole file (starting from start) is used.

If the file stream supports seeking, the source can be used to open a read-only zip archive from.

The file stream is closed when the source is being freed, usually by zip_close(3).


Upon successful completion, the created source is returned. Otherwise, NULL is returned and the error code in archive or error is set to indicate the error.


zip_source_filep() fails if:
file, start, or len are invalid.
Required memory could not be allocated.
