zip_name_locate - get index of file by name


libzip (-lzip)


zip.h zip_int64_t zip_name_locate zip_t *archive const char *fname zip_flags_t flags


The zip_name_locate function returns the index of the file named fname in archive. If ar‐ chive does not contain a file with that name, -1 is returned. The flags are specified by or'ing the following values, or 0 for none of them. ZIP_FL_NOCASE Ignore case distinctions. (Will only work well if the file names are ASCII.) ZIP_FL_NODIR Ignore directory part of file name in archive. ZIP_FL_ENC_RAW Compare against the unmodified names as it is in the ZIP archive. ZIP_FL_ENC_GUESS (Default.) Guess the encoding of the name in the ZIP archive and convert it to UTF-8, if necessary, before comparing. ZIP_FL_ENC_STRICT Follow the ZIP specification and expect CP-437 encoded names in the ZIP archive (except if they are explicitly marked as UTF-8). Convert it to UTF-8 before com‐ paring. Note: ASCII is a subset of both CP-437 and UTF-8.


zip_name_locate returns the index of the file named fname or -1, if archive does not con‐ tain an entry of that name.


zip_name_locate fails if: [ZIP_ER_NOENT] No entry of the name fname is found in the archive. [ZIP_ER_INVAL] One of the arguments is invalid. [ZIP_ER_MEMORY] Required memory could not be allocated.
