       zip_fdopen - open zip archive using open file descriptor


       libzip (-lzip)


       #include <zip.h>

       struct zip * zip_fdopen(int fd, int flags, int *errorp);


       The zip archive specified by the open file descriptor fd is opened and a pointer to a

       struct  zip,  used  to  manipulate  the archive, is returned.  In contrast to zip_open(3),
       using the archive can only be opened in read-only mode.  The fd argument may not  be  used
       any  longer  after calling The are specified by or'ing the following values, or 0 for none
       of them.

              ZIP_CHECKCONS  Perform additional consistency checks on the archive, and  error  if
                             they fail.

       If an error occurs and errorp is it will be set to the corresponding error code.


       Upon successful completion zip_fdopen returns a

       struct  zip  pointer,  and  fd  should  not  be  used  any longer, nor passed to close(2).
       Otherwise, NULL is returned and *errorp is set to indicate the error.  In the error  case,
       fd remains unchanged.


       The file specified by fd is prepared for use by libzip(3) unless:

                  Inconsistencies  were found in the file specified by path and ZIP_CHECKCONS was

                  The flags argument is invalid.  Not all zip_open(3) flags are allowed  for  see

                  Required memory could not be allocated.

                  The file specified by fd is not a zip archive.

                  The file specified by fd could not be prepared for use by libzip(3).

                  A read error occurred; see for details.

                  The file specified by fd does not allow seeks.
