ZlibExtract Library


ZlibExtract Library is a static 32bit utility library for use with zlibstat.lib (Zlib static library). ZlibExtract encapsulates the various functions found with zlibstat.lib to add the following functionality:

  • Extract all files contained within a specified zip file to a specified output folder
  • Extract files that match filespec (supports '?', '*' wildcard) from a specified zip file to a specified output folder.

The static Zlib library (zlibstat.lib) can be downloaded from http://www.winimage.com/zLibDll/zlib125dll.zip and is located in the static32 folder that is stored in this zip file.

zlib was written by Jean-loup Gailly (compression) and Mark Adler (decompression). Jean-loup is also the primary author/maintainer of gzip, the author of the comp.compression FAQ list and the former maintainer of Info-ZIP's Zip; Mark is also the author of gzip's and UnZip's main decompression routines and was the original author of Zip. Not surprisingly, the compression algorithm used in zlib is essentially the same as that in gzip and Zip, namely, the `deflate' method that originated in PKWARE's PKZIP 2.x.
