Crypt::OpenPGP::Compressed - Compressed data packets
use Crypt::OpenPGP::Compressed; my $data = 'serialized openpgp packets'; my $cdata = Crypt::OpenPGP::Compressed->new( Data => $data ); my $serialized = $cdata->save;
Crypt::OpenPGP::Compressed implements compressed data packets, providing both compression and decompression functionality, for all supported compression algorithms (
ZIP). This class uses Compress::Zlib for all compression/decompression needs for both algorithms:
ZIP is simply
Zlib with a different setting for the WindowBits parameter.
Decompressing a compressed data packet should always yield a stream of valid PGP packets (which you can then parse using Crypt::OpenPGP::PacketFactory). Similarly, when compressing a packet the input data should be a stream of packets.
Creates a new compressed data packet object and returns that object. If there are no arguments in %arg, the object is created with an empty compressed data container; this is used, for example, in parse (below), to create an empty packet which is then filled with the data in the buffer.
If you wish to initialize a non-empty object, %arg can contain:
A block of octets that make up the data that you wish to compress. As mentioned above, the data to compress should always be a stream of valid PGP packets (saved using Crypt::OpenPGP::PacketFactory::save).
This argument is required (for a non-empty object).
The name (or ID) of a supported PGP compression algorithm. Valid names are
This argument is optional; by default Crypt::OpenPGP::Compressed will use
Returns the serialized compressed data packet, which consists of a one-octet compression algorithm ID, followed by the compressed data.
Given $buffer, a Crypt::OpenPGP::Buffer object holding (or with offset pointing to) a compressed data packet, returns a new Crypt::OpenPGP::Compressed object, initialized with the data from the buffer.
Decompresses the compressed data in the Crypt::OpenPGP::Compressed object $cdata and returns the decompressed data.
