Class Compress

Used when the data to be compressed is not all in one buffer.

class Compress ;


this (level, header) Constructor.


compress (buf) Compress the data in buf and return the compressed data.
flush (mode) Compress and return any remaining data. The returned data should be appended to that returned by compress().
factory (classname) Create instance of class specified by the fully qualified name classname. The class must either have no constructors or have a default constructor.
opCmp (o) Compare with another Object obj.
opEquals (o) Test whether this is equal to o. The default implementation only compares by identity (using the is operator). Generally, overrides and overloads for opEquals should attempt to compare objects by their contents. A class will most likely want to add an overload that takes your specific type as the argument and does the content comparison. Then you can override this and forward it to your specific typed overload with a cast. Remember to check for null on the typed overload.
toHash () Compute hash function for Object.
toString () Convert Object to a human readable string.
