31.11 java.util.zip.Inflater (JDK 1.1)

This class implements the general ZLIB data decompression algorithm used by gzip, PKZip, and other data compression applications. It decompresses or "inflates" data compressed through the Deflater class.

The important methods of this class are setInput(), which specifies input data to be decompressed, and inflate(), which decompresses the input data into an output buffer. A number of other methods exist so that this class can be used for stream-based decompression, as it is in the higher-level classes such as GZIPInputStream and ZipInputStream. These stream-based classes are sufficient in most cases. Most applications do not need to use Inflater directly.

public class Inflater extends Object {
    // Public Constructors
            public Inflater(boolean nowrap);
            public Inflater();
    // Public Instance Methods
            public synchronized native void end();
            public synchronized boolean finished();
            public synchronized native int getAdler();
            public synchronized int getRemaining();
            public synchronized native int getTotalIn();
            public synchronized native int getTotalOut();
            public synchronized native int inflate(byte[] b, int off, int len) throws DataFormatException;
            public int inflate(byte[] b) throws DataFormatException;
            public synchronized boolean needsDictionary();
            public synchronized boolean needsInput();
            public synchronized native void reset();
            public synchronized native void setDictionary(byte[] b, int off, int len);
            public void setDictionary(byte[] b);
            public synchronized void setInput(byte[] b, int off, int len);
            public void setInput(byte[] b);
    // Protected Instance Methods
            protected void finalize();  // Overrides Object
