DESCRIPTION
       zipcloak encrypts all unencrypted entries in the zipfile.  This is the default action.

       The -d option is used to decrypt encrypted entries in the zipfile.

       zipcloak uses original zip encryption which is considered weak.

       Note:  The  encryption  code  of  this program is not copyrighted and is put in the public
              domain.  It was originally written in Europe and can be freely distributed from any
              country  including  the  U.S.A.   (Previously if this program was imported into the
              U.S.A, it could not be re-exported from the U.S.A to  another  country.)   See  the
              file  README.CR  included  in the source distribution for more on this.  Otherwise,
              the Info-ZIP license applies.

EXAMPLES
       To be added.

BUGS
       Large files (> 2 GB) and large archives not yet supported.

       Split archives not yet supported.  A work around is to convert the split archive to a sin‐
       gle-file  archive  using zip and then use zipcloak on the single-file archive.  If needed,
       the resulting archive can then be split again using zip.
