GZIP UDF or way to read .gz files without third party?

5 posts in this topic




meh... i'm sorry for not clarifying but I was more looking for an inherent way inside of AutoIT to do this and no have a dependency??? Right now I have GZIP. I was just hoping to be able to get around having a third-party dependency for this. Based off of the "Group" you're in Psalty, I'm assuming this is not possible as of now... ??

AutoIt MVP != Developer

There is ALWAYS a chance for a smarter answer than mine!

AutoIt has no magic. It makes use of standard Windows APIs, COM objects and DLL files. If there is an API included with Windows that reads GZIP (don't think there is) then AutoIt can make calls to it. The 7-zip extractor has a .DLL version that can be used from scripting languages, and can be included with your script via FileInstall(), consistent with its licensing (LGPL). Your version of GZIP may have the same available, I don't know.

thanx for the info psalty. while i saw that you're group was not Dev, with the number of posts, the content i've seen you post previously, and the fact that your member number is a third of mine, you've at least been around the block a few times...

thanx again for the in-depth explanation. =D
