NAME

zip_set_default_password - set default password for encrypted files in zip  

LIBRARY

libzip (-lzip)  

SYNOPSIS

#include <zip.h>

int
zip_set_default_password(struct zip *archiveconst char *password);  

DESCRIPTION

The zip_set_default_password() function sets the default password used when accessing encrypted files. If password is NULL, the default password is unset.

If you prefer a different password for single files, use zip_fopen_encrypted(3) instead of zip_fopen(3). Usually, however, the same password is used for every file in an zip archive.  

RETURN VALUES

Upon successful completion 0 is returned. Otherwise, -1 is returned and the error information in archive is set to indicate the error.  

ERRORS

zip_set_default_password() fails if:
[ZIP_ER_MEMORY]
Required memory could not be allocated.
