PHP zip_entry_open() Function

❮ PHP Zip Reference


Open a ZIP file archive, open directory entry for reading, and read from the open directory entry:

$zip = zip_open("test.zip");

if ($zip) {
  while ($zip_entry = zip_read($zip)) {
    echo "<p>Name: " . zip_entry_name($zip_entry) . "<br>";
    // Open directory entry for reading
    if (zip_entry_open($zip, $zip_entry)) {
      echo "File Contents:<br>";
      // Read open directory entry
      $contents = zip_entry_read($zip_entry);
      echo "$contents<br>";
  echo "</p>";

The output of the code depends on the contents of the ZIP archive:

Name: ziptest.txt
File Contents:
Hello World! This is a test.

Name: htmlziptest.html
File Contents:

Hello World!

This is a test for the zip functions in PHP.
