I need to provide a download of a zip archive containing three files.
This is fairly straightforward in PHP so long as one is working with
files that already exist. However, I need to customise one of the
files (a simple text file) with the user name and other info before
zipping. I see no mention of this in the fine manual, and even
googling has led me nowhere. Ideas? Am I missing something obvious?


The solution to this seems to be as simple as grabbing the contents of the file using ZipArchive::getFromName (or equivalent), deleting that file in the archive, modifying the contents, then writing the file using ZipArchive::addFromString.

Were ZipArchive::getStream able to handle write operations, I imagine you could modify it this way, but reading the file in for modification is much less issue-laden.

I haven't tested it, but you could also simply try using ZipArchive::addFromString without deleting the file first. It may just overwrite the file.
