The Archive.Zip pmc provides method to create an archive but does not offer function to unpack an existing zip file.

available functions should look like :

String[] listFiles(String archivePath)

provide a quick view of what contains the archive.

extract(String archivePath, String outputDirectory, Optional String[] filesToExtract, Hash hints)

hints are generaly here to offer the possibility to extra only a few files.

Archive/Zip.pir is a partial port of the Perl5 module Archive::Zip (version 1.30).
