ComponentOne Zip™ for Compact Framework is a class library designed to provide you with three levels of programmatic control. You take total control over zip files, and work directly with the low level data compression engine when you need more power and flexibility. This object model simplifies the process adding robust data compression and zip file manipulation functionality to your .NET apps, making it easier than you've ever imagined.
Create, Open, and Manage Industry Standard Zip Files
The highest level classes in the ComponentOne Zip for Mobile Devices library include the C1ZipFile, C1ZipEntry, and C1ZipEntryCollection classes. These classes give you the power to create, open, and easily manage industry standard zip files. With these classes, you can inspect the contents of zip files, test their integrity, and even add, delete, and extract entries to and from zip files.
Streamline Application Deployment
Using the high level classes (C1ZipFile, C1ZipEntry, and C1ZipEntryCollection), you can consolidate multiple files into a single compressed zip file (optionally password protected).
Save Disk Space and Network Bandwidth
Using the high level classes (C1ZipFile, C1ZipEntry, and C1ZipEntryCollection), you can allow your end-users to give their hard disk and network the extra space it deserves by adding convenient zip compression to your Mobile Device application.
Perform Powerful Data Compression Tasks
The medium level classes in the Zip library include C1ZStreamReader and C1ZStreamWriter. These classes let your Mobile Device applications perform a variety of powerful data compression tasks on not only zip files, but any .NET streams. With just a few lines of code, add complete data compression functionality to your applications!
100% C# Implementation of Zlib
The low level class in the Zip library includes ZStream. It is a 100% C# implementation of Zlib, the popular data-compression library written by Jean-loup Gailly and Mark Adler. ZStream is the most flexible class included in Zip and is used extensively by the higher level classes in Zip.
Industry Standard Format
Using the high level classes (C1ZipFile, C1ZipEntry, and C1ZipEntryCollection), you do not need to worry about file compatibility. Zip allows you to completely control industry standard zip files.
Fast, Low Memory Compression Engine
Using medium level classes (C1ZStreamReader and C1ZStreamWriter), you can save time with Zip' unique compression engine.
Stream-based Compression and Decompression
Using medium level classes (C1ZStreamReader and C1ZStreamWriter), you can take advantage of stream-based functionality which provides maximum flexibility for compressing and decompressing data into and out of regular .NET streams.
