- Inherit _file
inherit ._file : _file
Allows the user to open a Gzip archive and read and write it's contents in an uncompressed form, emulating the Stdio.File interface.
An important limitation on this class is that it may only be used for reading or writing, not both at the same time. Please also note that if you want to reopen a file for reading after a write, you must close the file before calling open or strange effects might be the result.
