    Hello Igor,

    the user of 7-Zip-JBinding (nickname "user578") asked me following question:

    For example, I have password protected archive with encrypted file names. I don't know the password, so I can't open it using 7-Zip-JBinding to read properties. But I wanna know if this even a password protected archive, but not any other file with accidentally added extension.
    Probably, I can read headers from file manually, but maybe there is easier way to do it using 7-Zip-JBinding?

    I see no way of doing it using InArchive interface or similar. Since this question isn't uncommon one, could you please post your opinion on it?

    Thank you in advice.
