Struct flate2::gz::read::MultiGzDecoder[][src]

pub struct MultiGzDecoder<R> {
    inner: MultiGzDecoder<BufReader<R>>,
}
Expand description

A gzip streaming decoder that decodes all members of a multistream

A gzip member consists of a header, compressed data and a trailer. The gzip specification, however, allows multiple gzip members to be joined in a single stream. MultiGzDecoder will decode all consecutive members while GzDecoder will only decompress the first gzip member. The multistream format is commonly used in bioinformatics, for example when using the BGZF compressed data.

This structure exposes a Read interface that will consume all gzip members from the underlying reader and emit uncompressed data.

Examples

use std::io::prelude::*;
use std::io;
use flate2::read::MultiGzDecoder;

// Uncompresses a Gz Encoded vector of bytes and returns a string or error
// Here &[u8] implements Read

fn decode_reader(bytes: Vec<u8>) -> io::Result<String> {
   let mut gz = MultiGzDecoder::new(&bytes[..]);
   let mut s = String::new();
   gz.read_to_string(&mut s)?;
   Ok(s)
}

Fields

inner: MultiGzDecoder<BufReader<R>>

Implementations

Creates a new decoder from the given reader, immediately parsing the (first) gzip header. If the gzip stream contains multiple members all will be decoded.

Returns the current header associated with this stream, if it’s valid.

Acquires a reference to the underlying reader.

Acquires a mutable reference to the underlying stream.

Note that mutation of the stream may result in surprising results if this encoder is continued to be used.

Consumes this decoder, returning the underlying reader.
