class mrpt::io::CFileGZOutputStream

Saves data to a file and transparently compress the data using the given compression level.

The generated files are in gzip format (“file.gz”). This class requires compiling MRPT with wxWidgets. If wxWidgets is not available then the class is actually mapped to the standard CFileOutputStream

Construction

CFileGZOutputStream(
    const std::string& fileName,
    const OpenMode mode = OpenMode::TRUNCATE,
    int compressionLevel = 1
    )

Constructor: opens an output file with the given compression level (Default= 1, the minimum, fastest).

Parameters:

fileName

The file to be open in this stream

append

If set to true, the file will be opened for writing and the current cursor position set at the end of the file. Otherwise, previous contents will be lost.

std::exception

if the file cannot be opened.

CFileGZOutputStream()

Constructor, without opening the file.

open

Methods

bool open(
    const std::string& fileName,
    int compress_level = 1,
    mrpt::optional_ref<std::string> error_msg = std::nullopt,
    const OpenMode mode = OpenMode::TRUNCATE
    )

Open a file for write, choosing the compression level.

Parameters:

fileName

The file to be open in this stream

compress_level

0:no compression, 1:fastest, 9:best

Returns:

true on success, false on any error.

void close()

Close the file.

bool fileOpenCorrectly() const

Returns true if the file was open without errors.

bool is_open()

Returns true if the file was open without errors.

virtual uint64_t getPosition() const

Method for getting the current cursor position, where 0 is the first byte and TotalBytesCount-1 the last one.

virtual uint64_t Seek(int64_t, CStream::TSeekOrigin = sFromBeginning)

This method is not implemented in this class.

virtual uint64_t getTotalBytesCount() const

This method is not implemented in this class.

virtual size_t Read(void* Buffer, size_t Count)

Introduces a pure virtual method responsible for reading from the stream.

virtual size_t Write(const void* Buffer, size_t Count)

Introduces a pure virtual method responsible for writing to the stream.

Write attempts to write up to Count bytes to Buffer, and returns the number of bytes actually written.
