compress.gzip #


compress.gzip is a module that assists in the compression and decompression of binary data using gzip compression


import compress.gzip

fn main() {
    uncompressed := 'Hello world!'
    compressed := gzip.compress(uncompressed.bytes())!
    decompressed := gzip.decompress(compressed)!
    assert decompressed == uncompressed.bytes()

fn compress #

fn compress(data []u8) ![]u8

compresses an array of bytes using gzip and returns the compressed bytes in a new array


compressed := gzip.compress(b)!

fn decompress #

fn decompress(data []u8, params DecompressParams) ![]u8

decompresses an array of bytes using zlib and returns the decompressed bytes in a new array


decompressed := gzip.decompress(b)!

fn validate #

fn validate(data []u8, params DecompressParams) !GzipHeader

validate validates the header and returns its details if valid
