Keywords (APIs, classes, methods, functions): RFile, EZGZipFile, TEZGZipHeader, TEZGZipTrailer, RFile::Open(),EZGZipFile::IsGzipFileL(), EZGZipFile::LocateAndReadTrailerL(), EZGZipFile::ReadHeaderL(),EZGZipFile::EFText,EZGZipFile::EFHcrc, EZGZipFile::EFExtra,EZGZipFile::EFName,EZGZipFile::EFComment

Overview

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

The trailer part of gzip file should contain following data:

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

The actual gzip header is defined to contain 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

}
}

Postconditions

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