Compression

Current Version: 9.5.0.79

Data compression component implementing the PPMD, Bzip2, Deflate, and LZW compression algorithms. .NET, ActiveX, and C++ implementations provide progress monitoring and abort capabilities. Provides a unified API for all supported compression algorithms.

Object Creation

c := chilkat.NewCompression()
...
c.DisposeCompression()

Properties

Algorithm
func (c *Compression) Algorithm() string
func (c *Compression) SetAlgorithm(s string)

The compression algorithm to be used. Should be set to either "ppmd", "deflate", "zlib", "bzip2", or "lzw".

Note: The PPMD compression algorithm is only available for 32-bit builds. It is not available for 64-bit implementations. Also, this PPMD implementation is the "J" variant.

top
Charset
func (c *Compression) Charset() string
func (c *Compression) SetCharset(s string)

Only applies to methods that compress or decompress strings. This specifies the character encoding that the string should be converted to before compression. Many programming languages use Unicode (2 bytes per char) for representing characters. This property allows for the string to be converted to a 1-byte per char encoding prior to compression.

top
DebugLogFilePath
func (c *Compression) DebugLogFilePath() string
func (c *Compression) SetDebugLogFilePath(s string)

If set to a file path, causes each Chilkat method or property call to automatically append it's LastErrorText to the specified log file. The information is appended such that if a hang or crash occurs, it is possible to see the context in which the problem occurred, as well as a history of all Chilkat calls up to the point of the problem. The VerboseLogging property can be set to provide more detailed information.

This property is typically used for debugging the rare cases where a Chilkat method call hangs or generates an exception that halts program execution (i.e. crashes). A hang or crash should generally never happen. The typical causes of a hang are:

  1. a timeout related property was set to 0 to explicitly indicate that an infinite timeout is desired,
  2. the hang is actually a hang within an event callback (i.e. it is a hang within the application code), or
  3. there is an internal problem (bug) in the Chilkat code that causes the hang.

top
DeflateLevel
func (c *Compression) DeflateLevel() int
func (c *Compression) SetDeflateLevel(v int)
Introduced in version 9.5.0.73

This property allows for customization of the compression level for the "deflate" and "zlib" compression algoirthms. ("zlib" is just the deflate algorithm with a zlib header.) A value of 0 = no compression, while 9 = maximum compression. The default is 6.

top
EncodingMode
func (c *Compression) EncodingMode() string
func (c *Compression) SetEncodingMode(s string)

Controls the encoding expected by methods ending in "ENC", such as CompressBytesENC. Valid values are "base64", "hex", "url", and "quoted-printable". Compression methods ending in ENC return the binary compressed data as an encoded string using this encoding. Decompress methods expect the input string to be this encoding.

top
LastErrorHtml
func (c *Compression) LastErrorHtml() string

Provides information in HTML format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

top
LastErrorText
func (c *Compression) LastErrorText() string

Provides information in plain-text format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

top
LastErrorXml
func (c *Compression) LastErrorXml() string

Provides information in XML format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

top
LastMethodSuccess
func (c *Compression) LastMethodSuccess() bool
func (c *Compression) SetLastMethodSuccess(b bool)
Introduced in version 9.5.0.52

Indicate whether the last method call succeeded or failed. A value of true indicates success, a value of false indicates failure. This property is automatically set for method calls. It is not modified by property accesses. The property is automatically set to indicate success for the following types of method calls:

  • Any method that returns a string.
  • Any method returning a Chilkat object, binary bytes, or a date/time.
  • Any method returning a standard boolean status value where success = true and failure = false.
  • Any method returning an integer where failure is defined by a return value less than zero.

Note: Methods that do not fit the above requirements will always set this property equal to true. For example, a method that returns no value (such as a "void" in C++) will technically always succeed.

top
VerboseLogging
func (c *Compression) VerboseLogging() bool
func (c *Compression) SetVerboseLogging(b bool)

If set to true, then the contents of LastErrorText (or LastErrorXml, or LastErrorHtml) may contain more verbose information. The default value is false. Verbose logging should only be used for debugging. The potentially large quantity of logged information may adversely affect peformance.

top
Version
func (c *Compression) Version() string
