NAME

zip_source_file - create data source from a file  

LIBRARY

libzip (-lzip)  

SYNOPSIS

struct zip_source *
zip_source_file(struct zip *archiveconst char *fnamezip_uint64_t startzip_int64_t len);  

DESCRIPTION

The function zip_source_file() creates a zip source from a file. zip_source_file() opens fname and reads len bytes from offset start from it. If len is 0 or -1, the whole file (starting from start) is used.

The fie is opened and read when the data from the source is used, usually by zip_close().  

RETURN VALUES

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

ERRORS

zip_source_file() fails if:
[ZIP_ER_INVAL]
fname, start, or len are invalid.
[ZIP_ER_MEMORY]
Required memory could not be allocated.
[ZIP_ER_OPEN]
Opening fname failed.
