zipnote command examples

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

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

zipnote > foo.tmp

This writes all comments in the zipfile 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.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.
