zzip_file_read —


#include <zzip/lib.h>
zzip_ssize_t zzip_file_read(); 


The zzip_file_read functions read data from zip-contained file.

It works like read(2) and will fill the given buffer with bytes from the opened file. It will return the number of bytes read, so if the EOF is encountered you will be prompted with the number of bytes actually read.

This is the routines that needs the buf32k buffer, and it would have need for much more polishing but it does already work quite well.

Note: the 32K buffer is rather big. The original inflate-algorithm required just that but the latest zlib would work just fine with a smaller buffer.
