An example of using GZFile API:

An example of deflating of a stream of data:
File.open("data.txt", "r") do |src| File.open("data.txt.z", "w") do |dst| deflate = Zlib::Deflate.new(dst) IO.copy(src, deflate) deflate.finish end end
and inflating it back:
File.open("data.txt.z", "r") do |src| inflate = Zlib::Inflate.new(STDOUT) IO.copy(src, inflate) end
