NAME

       zipnote  -  write  the  comments  in  zipfile to stdout, edit comments and rename files in
       zipfile

SYNOPSIS

       zipnote [-w] [-b path] [-h] [-v] [-L] zipfile

ARGUMENTS

       zipfile  Zipfile to read comments from or edit.

OPTIONS

       -w     Write comments to a zipfile from stdin (see below).

       -b path
              Use path for the temporary zip file.

       -h     Show a short help.

       -v     Show version information.

       -L     Show software license.

DESCRIPTION

       zipnote writes the comments in a zipfile to stdout.  This is the default mode.   A  second
       mode allows updating the comments in a zipfile as well as allows changing the names of the
       files in the zipfile.  These modes are described below.

EXAMPLES

       To write all comments in a zipfile to stdout use for example

            zipnote foo.zip > foo.tmp

       This writes all comments in the zipfile foo.zip to the file foo.tmp in a specific format.

       If desired, this file can then be edited to change the comments and then  used  to  update
       the zipfile.

            zipnote -w foo.zip < foo.tmp

       The  names  of  the files in the zipfile can also be changed in this way.  This is done by
       following lines like
            "@ name"
       in the created temporary file (called foo.tmp here) with lines like
            "@=newname"
       and then using the -w option as above.

BUGS

       The temporary file format is rather specific and zipnote is rather  picky  about  it.   It
       should be easier to change file names in a script.

       Does not yet support large (> 2 GB) or split archives.
