streamzip - create a zip file from stdin
producer | streamzip [opts] | consumer producer | streamzip [opts] -zipfile=output.zip
This program will read data from
stdin, compress it into a zip container and, by default, write a streamed zip file to
stdout. No temporary files are created.
The zip container written to
stdout is, by necessity, written in streaming format. Most programs that read Zip files can cope with a streamed zip file, but if interoperability is important, and your workflow allows you to write the zip file directly to disk you can create a non-streamed zip file using the
Create a Zip64-compliant zip container. Use this option if the input is greater than 4Gig.
Default is disabled.
Write zip container to the filename
Streamoption to force the creation of a streamed zip file.
This option is used to name the "file" in the zip container.
Default is '-'.
Ignored when writing to
zipfileoption is specified, including this option will trigger the creation of a streamed zip file.
Default: Always enabled when writing to
stdout, otherwise disabled.
Compress using method
Valid method names are
* store Store without compression * deflate Use Deflate compression [Deflault] * bzip2 Use Bzip2 compression * lzma Use LZMA compression
Note that Lzma compress needs
IO::Compress::Lzmato be installed.

A Streamed Zip File is useful in situations where you cannot seek backwards/forwards in the file.
A good examples is when you are serving dynamic content from a Web Server straight into a socket without needing to create a temporary zip file in the filesystsm.
Similarly if your workfow uses a Linux pipelined commands.
