The Archive::Zip module allows a Perl program to create, manipulate, read, and write Zip archive files without calling an external program. Members can be added, removed, extracted, replaced, rearranged, and enumerated. They can also be renamed or have their dates, comments, or other attributes queried or modified. Their data can be compressed or uncompressed as needed, and members can be created from members in existing Zip files, or from existing directories, files, or strings.
