Overview

This snippet shows how to get the trailer and the header info from GZIP files.

The trailer part of GZIP file should contain the following data:

  • CRC32
  • Input size (calculated from the original uncompressed data)

The actual GZIP header is defined to contain the following fields:

  • Fixed value for ID1 = 31
  • Fixed value for ID2 = 139
  • Compression method (8 is the standard)
  • Flags (0 = no flags are set)
  • Modification time (time stamp in Unix format)
  • Extra flags (maximum compression - fastest algorithm)
  • Operating System

This snippet can be self-signed.

MMP file

The following libraries are required:

LIBRARY efsrv.lib
LIBRARY ezlib.lib

Header file

Source file

#include <ezgzip.h>
#include <f32file.h>

}

buf->Des().Copy(*header.iComment);
console->Printf(KComment,buf);
CleanupStack::PopAndDestroy(); //buf
}
}

Postconditions

The trailer and header info from the given GZIP file is printed to the console.
