DESCRIPTION

fuse-zip is a fuse filesystem, that enables any program to work with a ZIP archive as though it is a plain directory. Unlike KIO or Gnome VFS, it can be used in any application without modifications.

Unlike other FUSE filesystems, only fuse-zip provides write support to ZIP archives. Also, fuse-zip is faster that all known implementations on large archives with many files.

USAGE

General usage would look like this

1mkdir /tmp/zipArchive
2fuse-zip foobar.zip /tmp/zipArchive
3(do something with the mounted file system)
4fusermount -u /tmp/zipArchive

Be patient. Wait for fuse-zip process finish after unmounting, especially on a big archives.
