hi all

i use socket to fetch the html page

and the request tag "Accept-Encoding:gzip" so i recieve a compress data

i try use zlib to uncompress but i failed when i call function inflate

i use the code follow:

#define CHUNK 16384
int inflate_read(char *source,int len,char **dest,int gzip) 
	int ret; 
	unsigned have; 
	z_stream strm; 
	unsigned char out[CHUNK] = {0}; 
	int totalsize = 0; 
	/* allocate inflate state */ 
	strm.zalloc = Z_NULL; 
	strm.zfree = Z_NULL; 
	strm.opaque = Z_NULL; 
	strm.avail_in = 0; 
	strm.next_in = Z_NULL; 
		ret = inflateInit2(&strm, 47); 
		ret = inflateInit(&strm); 
	if (ret != Z_OK) 
		return ret; 
	strm.avail_in = len; 
	strm.next_in = (Bytef*)source; 
	/* run inflate() on input until output buffer not full */ 
	do { 
		strm.avail_out = CHUNK; 
		strm.next_out = out; 
		ret = inflate(&strm, Z_NO_FLUSH); 
		assert(ret != Z_STREAM_ERROR); /* state not clobbered */ 
		switch (ret) { 
		case Z_NEED_DICT: 
			ret = Z_DATA_ERROR; /* and fall through */ 
		case Z_DATA_ERROR: 
		case Z_MEM_ERROR: 
			return ret; 
		have = CHUNK - strm.avail_out; 
		totalsize += have; 
		*dest = (char*)realloc(*dest,totalsize); 
		memcpy(*dest + totalsize - have,out,have); 
	} while (strm.avail_out == 0); 
	/* clean up and return */ 
	return ret == Z_STREAM_END ? Z_OK : Z_DATA_ERROR; 

someone can help me how to uncompress data and uncompress data with "Transfer-Encoding: chunked"

thank you

This looks like C... are you sure it's tagged correctly? Also, posting a solution to your question moves your question out of the "unanswered" category, reducing your odds of getting help, so don't do that in the future.

This code gets html page. Put html page's address to fetch instead of Below posted code is from[^]

#include <stdio.h>
int main(void)
  CURL *curl;
  CURLcode res;
  curl = curl_easy_init();
  if(curl) {
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "");
    res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
    /* always cleanup */ 
  return 0;
