I'm new to Python and trying to figure out how to read and write to
password protected zip files.

I can work with plain zip files no problem.

I've googled this topic and am coming up empty except for a post on that seemed to imply that password protected zip files
may(???) be supported in Python 2.6 and ads for a commercial Windows
(only) zip component from

Any suggestions?

Thank you,
