ZIP Module

From BaseX Documentation

Jump to: navigation, search

This XQuery Module contains functions to handle ZIP archives. The contents of ZIP files can be extracted and listed, and new archives can be created. The module is based on the EXPath ZIP Module. Please note that the ZIP module is not being actively maintained but is still distributed for compatibility with older applications. We recommend you use the Archive Module wherever possible.
