NAME

POE::Filter::Zlib - A POE filter wrapped around Compress::Zlib

SYNOPSIS

    use POE::Filter::Zlib;

    my $filter = POE::Filter::Zlib->new();
    my $scalar = 'Blah Blah Blah';
    my $compressed_array   = $filter->put( [ $scalar ] );
    my $uncompressed_array = $filter->get( $compressed_array );

    use POE qw(Filter::Stackable Filter::Line Filter::Zlib);

    my ($filter) = POE::Filter::Stackable->new();
    $filter->push( POE::Filter::Zlib->new(),
                   POE::Filter::Line->new( InputRegexp => '\015?\012', OutputLiteral => "\015\012" ),

DESCRIPTION

POE::Filter::Zlib provides a POE filter for performing compression/uncompression using Compress::Zlib. It is suitable for use with POE::Filter::Stackable.

This filter is not ideal for streaming compressed data over sockets etc. as it employs compress and uncompress zlib functions.

POE::Filter::Zlib::Stream is recommended for that type of activity.

CONSTRUCTOR

new

Creates a new POE::Filter::Zlib object. Takes one optional argument,

  'level': the level of compression to employ.

Consult Compress::Zlib for details.

METHODS

get
get_one_start
get_one

Takes an arrayref which is contains lines of compressed input. Returns an arrayref of uncompressed lines.

get_pending

Returns any data in a filter's input buffer. The filter's input buffer is not cleared, however.

put

Takes an arrayref containing lines of uncompressed output, returns an arrayref of compressed lines.

clone

Makes a copy of the filter, and clears the copy's buffer.

level

Sets the level of compression employed to the given value. If no value is supplied, returns the current level setting.
