Bases: zipfile.ZipFile

Overwrite method

This raises exception BadZipFile with the following message: File name in directory … and header … differ due to a mismatch between backslashes.

Open the ZIP file with mode read ‘r’, write ‘w’, exclusive create ‘x’, or append ‘a’.

open(name, mode='r', pwd=None, *, force_zip64=False)[source][source]

Returns file-like object for ‘name’.

  • name – is a string for the file name within the ZIP file, or a ZipInfo object.

  • mode – should be ‘r’ to read a file already in the ZIP file, or ‘w’ to write to a file newly added to the archive.

  • pwd – is the password to decrypt files (only used for reading).

When writing, if the file size is not known in advance but may exceed 2 GiB, pass force_zip64 to use the ZIP64 format, which can handle large files. If the size is known in advance, it is best to pass a ZipInfo instance for name, with zinfo.file_size set.
