I have tried to edit a zip file with vim.
I am able to open and edit, but no luck when saving.
The file is /home/rejap/foo.zip and I can write to it (create with zip).

"~/zipfile:/home/rejap/foo.zip::foo.txt" E212: Can't open file for writing

If I move file to / it works.
What am I doing wrong.

thanks for any help
