zipnote writes the comments in a zipfile to stdout. This is the default mode. A second mode allows updating the comments in a zipfile as well as allows changing the names of the files in the zipfile. These modes are described below.

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
and then using the -w option as above.

The temporary file format is rather specific and zipnote is rather picky about it. It should be easier to change file names in a script.

Does not yet support large (> 2 GB) or split archives.
