Playing around with opening up a compressed file inside of cinder. Looking at the buffer class, there is a decompressBuffer function which seems to allow for gzip decompression. Here is the relevant line in the cinder source https://github.com/cinder/Cinder/blob/master/src/cinder/Buffer.cpp#L148 . This is how I’m trying to do it.
auto inFile = loadFile("compressedTextFile.txt"); Buffer loadedBuf(inFile); Buffer decom = decompressBuffer(loadedBuf, true, true); string dString( static_cast<const char*>( decom.getData() ) ); console () << loadedBuf.getSize() << endl; // the correct size console () << decom.getSize() << endl; // this is 0
My decompressed buffer is always 0. Am I doing this wrong? For reference, I can type “unzip compressedTextFile.txt” in the terminal and it will unpack correctly.
