1PROJECT 2 The zziplib provides read access to zipped files in a zip-archive, 3 using compression based solely on free algorithms provided by zlib. 4 It also provides a functionality to overlay the archive filesystem 5 with the filesystem of the operating system environment. 6 7AUTHOR 8 The project was originally written by Tomi Ollila, later largely 9 rewritten by Guido Draheim, and extended with contributions in 10 the years to follow. Guido Draheim <firstname.lastname@example.org> holds the full 11 copyright to the zziplib sources. 12 13COPYING 14 The zziplib may be used freely under the restrictions of the 15 GNU Lesser General Public License version 2 or later. Alternativly 16 the Mozilla Public license can be chosen. The sources are under 17 a dual license, as long as the MPL hint is not removed, the modified 18 files will be again under a dual license for the final recipient. 19 20LICENSING 21 If you can not use a dynalinked library according to LGPL rules, 22 then look at docs/copying.htm for a few hints. Generally the LGPL 23 has a way for staticlinking as well as the MPL has a way. Anyway, 24 special (paid) licenses can be negotiated with the copyright holder. 25 26HOMEPAGE 27 The zziplib project is hosted at SourceForge, the complete 28 documentation can be found at http://zziplib.sf.net - the 29 SourceForge servers are also used to distribute the sources 30 of the zziplib project. Releases are announced via the 31 freshmeat services on http://freshmeat.net/projects/zziplib 32 33INSTALLATION 34 The zziplib sources are built with gnu autotools and they should 35 be easy to install on unixish systems via the usual sequence of 36 `configure && make && make check && make install`. Many distributors 37 ship prebuilt packages e.g. in rpm format. Additionally there are 38 MSVC project files shipped along for usage with the Microsoft 39 VisualC series of compilers. There should be no problem either 40 when crosscompiling the zziplib for a third host platform. 41 42MAINTAINANCE 43 The zziplib library is intentionally a lightweight interface to 44 zip files. The author take patches but please consider to put 45 complex extensions into separate modules rather than implanting them 46 right into the core of the library engine. All Patches and Bug Reports 47 should be sent to Guido Draheim <email@example.com>.
