(Visual Basic 6.0) Decompress Large Text File in Blocks

Decompresses a large text file in blocks, and compares the restored (decompressed) file with the original to make sure it's correct.

ActiveX for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows

' This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
' See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

' First, let's compress a text file.
' We'll then decompress in blocks, and compare the decompressed with the original file.

' Compress a text file:
Dim compress As New ChilkatCompression
compress.Algorithm = "deflate"

Dim success As Long
success = compress.CompressFile("qa_data/hamlet.xml","qa_data/hamlet_compressed.dat")
If (success <> 1) Then
    Debug.Print compress.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

Dim fac As New CkFileAccess

' Examine the uncompressed and compressed sizes:
Dim originalPath As String
originalPath = "qa_data/hamlet.xml"
' Note: The FileSize method returns a signed 32-bit integer.  If the file is potentially larger than 2GB, call FileSizeStr instead to return
' the size of the file as a string, then convert to an integer value.
Debug.Print "uncompressed size: " & fac.FileSize(originalPath)
Debug.Print "compressed size: " & fac.FileSize("qa_data/hamlet_compressed.dat")

' Decompress in blocks..
Dim facSrc As New CkFileAccess
Dim facDest As New CkFileAccess

success = facSrc.OpenForRead("qa_data/hamlet_compressed.dat")

' If we compress in 32K chunks, find out how many blocks there will be.
Dim blockSize As Long
blockSize = 32768
Dim numBlocks As Long
numBlocks = facSrc.GetNumBlocks(blockSize)

' Open an output file for the decompressed data.
Dim restoredPath As String
restoredPath = "qa_output/hamlet_restored.xml"
success = facDest.OpenForWrite(restoredPath)
If (success <> 1) Then
    Debug.Print facDest.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

Dim decompressedStr As String
Dim compressedBytes() As Byte

Dim i As Long
i = 0
Do While i < numBlocks
    compressedBytes = facSrc.ReadBlock(i,blockSize)
    If (i = 0) Then
        decompressedStr = compress.BeginDecompressString(compressedBytes)
    Else
        decompressedStr = compress.MoreDecompressString(compressedBytes)
    End If

    success = facDest.AppendText(decompressedStr,"utf-8")

    i = i + 1
Loop

' At the very end, flush any remaining content, if any.
decompressedStr = compress.EndDecompressString()
success = facDest.AppendText(decompressedStr,"utf-8")

facSrc.FileClose 
facDest.FileClose 

' Examine the size of the restored file.
Debug.Print "restored size: " & fac.FileSize(restoredPath)

' Compare the contents of the original with the restored.
Dim bEqualContents As Long
bEqualContents = fac.FileContentsEqual(restoredPath,originalPath)
Debug.Print "Contents Equal: " & bEqualContents
