This command decodes the last opened (and not yet closed) zip archive file. The result of the command is a dictionary describing the contents of the archive. The structure of this dictionary is not public. Proper access should be made through the provided accessor command of this package.

::zipfile::decode::close

This command releases all state associated with the last call of ::zipfile::decode::open. The result of the command is the empty string.

::zipfile::decode::comment adict

This command takes a dictionary describing the currently open zip archive file, as returned by ::zipfile::decode::archive, and returns the global comment of the archive.

::zipfile::decode::content archive

This is a convenience command which decodes the specified zip archive file and returns the list of paths found in it as its result.

::zipfile::decode::copyfile adict path dst

This command takes a dictionary describing the currently open zip archive file, as returned by ::zipfile::decode::archive, and copies the decompressed contents of the file path in the archive to the the file dst. An error is thrown if the file is not found in the archive.

::zipfile::decode::files adict

This command takes a dictionary describing the currently open zip archive file, as returned by ::zipfile::decode::archive, and returns the list of files found in the archive.

If multiple open calls are made one after the other only the state of the last call is available to the other commands.
