    Is 7-zip support stream comporession? just like what zlib has done. Is there such interface to access 7-zip input stream and output stream? I would like to compress a large file without generating the compressed file , instead, sending compressed data blocks to another machine through network. How can I do it with 7-zip?
    Another problem, I don't know how to compile 7-zip on linux operating system. I don't know which makefile to use in p7zip_9.04_src_all.tar.bz2. Can any body give me some detailed suggestion?

     
    • Hey John,
      I would like to know the answer to your question as well. Please let me know if you were able to use 7z to your purpose.

      Thanks.
