Note: Currently, compression_flags are ignored. set_file_encryption index method password Set file encryption method for archive entry index to method with password password. set_file_mtime index timestamp Set file modification time for archive entry index to UNIX mtime timestamp. set_file_mtime_all timestamp Set file modification time for all archive entries to UNIX mtime timestamp. set_password password Set default password for encryption/decryption to password. stat index Print information about archive entry index. Flags Some commands take flag arguments. Supported flags are: C ZIP_FL_NOCASE c ZIP_FL_CENTRAL d ZIP_FL_NODIR l ZIP_FL_LOCAL u ZIP_FL_UNCHANGED Compression Methods Some commands take compression method arguments.
