class Gzip::Reader

Overview

A read-only IO object to decompress data in the gzip format.

Instances of this class wrap another IO object. When you read from this instance instance, it reads data from the underlying IO, decompresses it, and returns it to the caller.

NOTE A gzip stream can contain zero or more members. If it contains no members, #header will be nil. If it contains one or more members, only the first header will be recorded here. This is because gzipping multiple members is not common as one usually combines gzip with tar. If, however, multiple members are present then reading from this reader will return the concatenation of all the members.

Example: decompress a gzip file

require "gzip"

File.write("file.gzip", Bytes[31, 139, 8, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 3, 75, 76, 74, 6, 0, 194, 65, 36, 53, 3, 0, 0, 0])

string = File.open("file.gzip") do |file|
  Gzip::Reader.open(file) do |gzip|
    gzip.gets_to_end
  end
end
string # => "abc"

Constructor Detail

def self.new(io : IO, sync_close = false)Source

Creates a new reader from the given io.

def self.new(filename : String)Source

Creates a new reader from the given filename.

Class Method Detail

def self.open(io : IO, sync_close = false, &block)Source

Creates a new reader from the given io, yields it to the given block, and closes it at the end.

def self.open(filename : String, &block)Source

Creates a new reader from the given filename, yields it to the given block, and closes it at the end.

Instance Method Detail

def closed? : BoolSource

Returns true if this reader is closed.

def header : Header?Source

Returns the first header in the gzip stream, if any.

def sync_close=(sync_close)Source

Whether to close the enclosed IO when closing this reader.

def sync_close? : BoolSource

Whether to close the enclosed IO when closing this reader.

def unbuffered_closeSource

Closes this reader.

def unbuffered_flushSource

Description copied from module IO::Buffered

Flushes the wrapped IO.

def unbuffered_read(slice : Bytes)Source

See IO#read.

def unbuffered_rewindSource

Description copied from module IO::Buffered

Rewinds the wrapped IO.

def unbuffered_write(slice : Bytes) : NilSource

Always raises IO::Error because this is a read-only IO.
