  libcomprex - Comprex (de)compression library

The libcomprex library transparently handles automatic compression and decompression of files. The API is similar to C's built-in file access functions, which provides a smooth transition to libcomprex. libcomprex can also open uncompressed files, making it a good replacement for the native file access functions.

If libcurl is installed (highly recommended), libcomprex will have the ability to retrieve files from online servers. It supports a wide variety of protocols, such as HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS, and Gopher. The libcurl library can be downloaded from http://curl.haxx.se/.



  Status

libcomprex can currently open ar, bzip2, cpio, gzip, tar, and zip files. It supports basic archive writing in some formats. The API is very volatile, and development should be done against the CVS version.

To keep an eye out on the status of libcomprex, visit the ChangeLog, or subscribe to the CVS listserv on our ListServs page.
