NAME

zip_set_default_password - set default password for encrypted files in zip

LIBRARY

libzip (-lzip)

SYNOPSIS

zip.h int zip_set_default_password zip_t *archive const char *password

DESCRIPTION

The zip_set_default_password function sets the default password used when accessing encrypted files. If password is NULL, the default password is unset. If you prefer a different password for single files, use zip_fopen_encrypted(3) instead of zip_fopen(3). Usually, however, the same password is used for every file in an zip ar‐ chive.

RETURN VALUES

Upon successful completion 0 is returned. Otherwise, -1 is returned and the error infor‐ mation in archive is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS

zip_set_default_password fails if: [ZIP_ER_MEMORY] Required memory could not be allocated.
