Description Rui Miguel Seabra 2001-12-10 15:35:00 UTC
zipios is c++ library for handling zip files which seems interesting, and
is a requirement for abiword openwriter plugin

From the website:
 Zipios++ is a java.util.zip-like C++ library for reading and writing Zip
files. Access to individual entries is provided through standard C++
iostreams. A simple read-only virtual file system that mounts regular
directories and zip files is also provided.

I put this as a bug on zlib because I didn't know better.

refiling against abiword... is it useful for AbiWord?

Comment 2 Rui Miguel Seabra 2001-12-10 23:35:45 UTC
Yes, it is. I forgot that abiword is shipped with redhat :)
The OpenWriter abiword plugin requires zipios.
Since abiword, with the openwriter plugin, is able to get the gist of open
writer docs, it is an indirect dependency of abiword.

thanks, rms

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-07-18 04:26:30 UTC
We don't ship the plugin and don't generally add libraries unless there are
things actually depending on them which we ship.
