Gzip Unicode C Reference Documentation

Gzip

Current Version: 9.5.0.73

GZip compression component.

Create/Dispose

HCkGzipW instance = CkGzipW_Create();
// ...
CkGzipW_Dispose(instance);
HCkGzipW CkGzipW_Create(void);

Creates an instance of the HCkGzipW object and returns a handle ("void *" pointer). The handle is passed in the 1st argument for the functions listed on this page.

void CkGzipW_Dispose(HCkGzipW handle);

Objects created by calling CkGzipW_Create must be freed by calling this method. A memory leak occurs if a handle is not disposed by calling this function. Also, any handle returned by a Chilkat "C" function must also be freed by the application by calling the appropriate Dispose method, such as CkGzipW_Dispose.

Callback Functions

Callback Functions introduced in Chilkat v9.5.0.56
void CkGzipW_setAbortCheck(HCkGzipW cHandle, BOOL (*fnAbortCheck)(void));

Provides the opportunity for a method call to be aborted. If TRUE is returned, the operation in progress is aborted. Return FALSE to allow the current method call to continue. This callback function is called periodically based on the value of the HeartbeatMs property. (If HeartbeatMs is 0, then no callbacks are made.) As an example, to make 5 AbortCheck callbacks per second, set the HeartbeatMs property equal to 200.

void CkGzipW_setPercentDone(HCkGzipW cHandle, BOOL (*fnPercentDone)(int pctDone));

Provides the percentage completed for any method that involves network communications or time-consuming processing (assuming it is a method where a percentage completion can be measured). This callback is only called when it is possible to know a percentage completion, and when it makes sense to express the operation as a percentage completed. The pctDone argument will have a value from 1 to 100. For methods that complete very quickly, the number of PercentDone callbacks will vary, but the final callback should have a value of 100. For long running operations, no more than one callback per percentage point will occur (for example: 1, 2, 3, ... 98, 99, 100).

This callback counts as an AbortCheck callback, and takes the place of the AbortCheck event when it fires.

The return value indicates whether the method call should be aborted, or whether it should proceed. Return TRUE to abort, and FALSE to proceed.

void CkGzipW_setProgressInfo(HCkGzipW cHandle, void (*fnProgressInfo)(const wchar_t *name, const wchar_t *value));

This is a general callback that provides name/value information about what is happening at certain points during a method call. To see the information provided in ProgressInfo callbacks, if any, write code to handle this event and log the name/value pairs. Most are self-explanatory.

void CkGzipW_setTaskCompleted(HCkGzipW cHandle, void (*fnTaskCompleted)(HCkTaskW hTask));

Called in the background thread when an asynchronous task completes. (Note: When an async method is running, all callbacks are in the background thread.)

Properties

AbortCurrent
BOOL CkGzipW_getAbortCurrent(HCkGzipW cHandle);
void CkGzipW_putAbortCurrent(HCkGzipW cHandle, BOOL newVal);
Introduced in version 9.5.0.58

When set to TRUE, causes the currently running method to abort. Methods that always finish quickly (i.e.have no length file operations or network communications) are not affected. If no method is running, then this property is automatically reset to FALSE when the next method is called. When the abort occurs, this property is reset to FALSE. Both synchronous and asynchronous method calls can be aborted. (A synchronous method call could be aborted by setting this property from a separate thread.)

top
Comment
void CkGzipW_getComment(HCkGzipW cHandle, HCkString retval);
void CkGzipW_putComment(HCkGzipW cHandle, const wchar_t *newVal);
const wchar_t *CkGzipW_comment(HCkGzipW cHandle);

Specifies an optional comment string that can be embedded within the .gz when any Compress* method is called.

top
CompressionLevel
int CkGzipW_getCompressionLevel(HCkGzipW cHandle);
void CkGzipW_putCompressionLevel(HCkGzipW cHandle, int newVal);
Introduced in version 9.5.0.50

The compression level to be used when compressing. The default is 6, which is the typical value used for zip utility programs when compressing data. The compression level may range from 0 (no compression) to 9 (the most compression). The benefits of trying to increase compression may not be worth the added expense in compression time. In many cases (which is data dependent), the improvement in compression is minimal while the increase in computation time is significant.

top
DebugLogFilePath
void CkGzipW_getDebugLogFilePath(HCkGzipW cHandle, HCkString retval);
void CkGzipW_putDebugLogFilePath(HCkGzipW cHandle, const wchar_t *newVal);
const wchar_t *CkGzipW_debugLogFilePath(HCkGzipW cHandle);

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
ExtraData
void CkGzipW_getExtraData(HCkGzipW cHandle, HCkByteData retval);
void CkGzipW_putExtraData(HCkGzipW cHandle, const unsigned char *newVal);

Optional extra-data that can be included within a .gz when a Compress* method is called.

top
Filename
void CkGzipW_getFilename(HCkGzipW cHandle, HCkString retval);
void CkGzipW_putFilename(HCkGzipW cHandle, const wchar_t *newVal);
const wchar_t *CkGzipW_filename(HCkGzipW cHandle);

The filename that is embedded within the .gz during any Compress* method call. When extracting from a .gz using applications such as WinZip, this will be the filename that is created.

top
HeartbeatMs
int CkGzipW_getHeartbeatMs(HCkGzipW cHandle);
void CkGzipW_putHeartbeatMs(HCkGzipW cHandle, int newVal);

The number of milliseconds between each AbortCheck event callback. The AbortCheck callback allows an application to abort any method call prior to completion. If HeartbeatMs is 0 (the default), no AbortCheck event callbacks will fire.

top
LastErrorHtml
void CkGzipW_getLastErrorHtml(HCkGzipW cHandle, HCkString retval);
const wchar_t *CkGzipW_lastErrorHtml(HCkGzipW cHandle);

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
void CkGzipW_getLastErrorText(HCkGzipW cHandle, HCkString retval);
const wchar_t *CkGzipW_lastErrorText(HCkGzipW cHandle);

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
void CkGzipW_getLastErrorXml(HCkGzipW cHandle, HCkString retval);
const wchar_t *CkGzipW_lastErrorXml(HCkGzipW cHandle);

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
BOOL CkGzipW_getLastMethodSuccess(HCkGzipW cHandle);
void CkGzipW_putLastMethodSuccess(HCkGzipW cHandle, BOOL newVal);
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
LastMod
SYSTEMTIME * CkGzipW_getLastMod(HCkGzipW cHandle);
void CkGzipW_putLastMod(HCkGzipW cHandle, SYSTEMTIME *newVal);
This property is deprecated. It will be removed in a future version.

The last-modification date/time to be embedded within the .gz when a Compress* method is called. By default, the current system date/time is used.

top
LastModStr
void CkGzipW_getLastModStr(HCkGzipW cHandle, HCkString retval);
void CkGzipW_putLastModStr(HCkGzipW cHandle, const wchar_t *newVal);
const wchar_t *CkGzipW_lastModStr(HCkGzipW cHandle);

The same as the LastMod property, but allows the date/time to be get/set in RFC822 string format.

top
UseCurrentDate
BOOL CkGzipW_getUseCurrentDate(HCkGzipW cHandle);
void CkGzipW_putUseCurrentDate(HCkGzipW cHandle, BOOL newVal);

If set to TRUE, the file produced by an Uncompress* method will use the current date/time for the last-modification date instead of the date/time found within the Gzip format.

top
VerboseLogging
BOOL CkGzipW_getVerboseLogging(HCkGzipW cHandle);
void CkGzipW_putVerboseLogging(HCkGzipW cHandle, BOOL newVal);

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
void CkGzipW_getVersion(HCkGzipW cHandle, HCkString retval);
const wchar_t *CkGzipW_version(HCkGzipW cHandle);
