Password protected zip files

Dec 28 '15 at 20:27


inside the thread below

is stated that various entries inside the zip file may have different passwords. My question is: is there a way to know if a specific entry is password protected and/or encrypted? Something similar to the existing get_PasswordProtect or get_Encryption functions of the CkZip class but inside the CkZipEntry class?

Kind Regards

It's theoretically possible that individual entries could have different passwords -- but you'll likely never actually see it. I don't think any Zip utility program makes it possible to do it.

There's no such function for the CkZipEntry class -- and I sincerely don't think it's needed..
