zipc A Simple ZIP Container "Library"

Version BSD 2-Clause Build Status Coverity Scan Status LGTM Grade LGTM Alerts

zipc is a simple ZIP container “library” consisting of a C source file and accompanying header file. The ZIP format is documented in the PKWARE APPNOTE.TXT - .ZIP File Format Specification.

The current version implements reading and writing of files smaller than 4GB, with or without deflate compression. There is no support for signatures, encryption, password protection, etc. as those features of ZIP are typically not used for ZIP container-based formats.

Among other places, zipc is used by my HTMLDOC and Mini-XML projects to generate EPUB books.

I’m providing this as open source under the “new” 2-clause BSD license which allows you do pretty much do whatever you like with it. Please do provide feedback and report bugs to the Github project page so that everyone can benefit.
