Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-207) add notifier support for new block in BZip2CompressorInputStream
Date Sun, 27 Mar 2016 16:53:25 GMT


Thomas Meyer commented on COMPRESS-207:


regarding the bsGetBit change: what's a heads-up? what does this mean? sorry, I didn't want
to be rude.

thanks for your work on this! I'll have a look at your branch.

regarding resetBlock method: This call is needed to position bit-exact on a bzip2-block. I'm
not sure how to generalize this. An usage example is here:

The idea is: through the listener you get the bit-exact bzip2 block position, and through
an underlying random access of the compressed file you can seek to the correct byte position,
and skip the remaining bits to start processing at the given bzip2 block.
