zip_entry_openOpen a directory entry for reading

Opens a directory entry in a zip file for reading.



A valid resource handle returned by zip_open().


A directory entry returned by zip_read().


Any of the modes specified in the documentation of fopen().

Note: Currently, mode is ignored and is always "rb". This is due to the fact that zip support in PHP is read only access.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Note: Unlike fopen() and other similar functions, the return value of zip_entry_open() only indicates the result of the operation and is not needed for reading or closing the directory entry.
