Issue Processing bz2 files


#1

The following code:

using (FileStream zipFile = File.Open("/tmp/jobReport.json.bz2", FileMode.Open))
        {
            using (var archive = new Archive(zipFile))
            {
                var list = archive.Entries.ToList(); //.ExtractToDirectory(dataDir + "DecompressFolder_out");
            }
        }

Throws exception:

System.IO.IOException : An attempt was made to move the file pointer before the beginning of the file : ‘C:\tmp\jobReport.json.bz2’
at System.IO.FileStream.SeekCore(SafeFileHandle fileHandle, Int64 offset, SeekOrigin origin, Boolean closeInvalidHandle)

This is the input file:

It is a simple file compressed on a MAC using bzip2

The archive you shared is not a zip archive, it is bzip2 one. It can’t be opened with Aspose.Zip.Archive, it has to be opened with Aspose.Zip.Bzip2.Bzip2Archive.

It is to inform you that the issue which you are facing is actually not a bug in Aspose.Words. So, we have closed this issue (ZIPNET-375) as ‘Not a Bug’.

Please use the following code example to read the bzip2 file format.

using (var archive = new Aspose.Zip.Bzip2.Bzip2Archive("jobReport.json.bz2"))
{
    using (var extractedFile = File.Create("jobReport.json"))
    {
         using (var content = archive.Open())
         {
              content.CopyTo(extractedFile);
         }
    }
}
