Problem with ZLIB

Problem with ZLIB

Post by juanj » Thu, 20 Aug 1998 04:00:00


    Sorry but I spent many hours to detect why doesn't work this
program, and I dont make anything. I'm using Zlib and compiling with
DJGPP MSDOS compiler.

This is the simple program:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include "zlib.h"
#include "zutil.h"
#define SIZE 4000
unsigned char buf[SIZE];
unsigned char *ubuf;
int fp,fp2;
long uncomprLen=200000;
long comprLen=SIZE;
int err;

    z_stream d_stream; /* decompression stream */

 ubuf=(unsigned char *)malloc(200000);

 d_stream.zalloc = (alloc_func)0;
 d_stream.zfree = (free_func)0;
 d_stream.opaque = (voidpf)0;

 d_stream.next_in  = &buf[0];
 d_stream.avail_in = 0;
 d_stream.next_out = ubuf;

  err = inflateInit(&d_stream);
  printf("%d %s\n",err, "inflateInit");

  while (d_stream.total_out < uncomprLen && d_stream.total_in <
comprLen) {
        d_stream.avail_in = d_stream.avail_out = 1; /* force small
buffers */
        err = inflate(&d_stream, Z_NO_FLUSH);
        if (err == Z_STREAM_END) break;
        printf("%d %s\n",err, "inflate");
        if (err == Z_DATA_ERROR) break;


What's happen ? Always return with Z_DATA_ERROR

Many thanks.

1. Problem building zlib on Solaris 8

I'm probably missing something, but after getting this to build on AIX
so easily, I'm getting a little frustrated about doing the same on
Solaris 8.

I ran configure like this:

prefix=/bnr/gsmomc/3rdParty-SunOS CC=/opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc configure

It produced no errors, but when I run make I get

/opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc -fast -xcg89 -DNO_ERRNO_H  -c  example.c
ms_pipeliner_b::process_option -- unknown chip type in -Qms_pipe+xchip
ms_pipeliner::process_option -- unknown chip type in -Qms_pipe+xchip=<chip>


Is this something I need to worry about? Can I change something to fix
it? Have I just made a fool out of myself by not seeing something in
the documentation?
