Enumeration Type Documentation

enum BrotliEncoderMode

Options for BROTLI_PARAM_MODE parameter.

Enumerator

BROTLI_MODE_GENERIC

Default compression mode. In this mode compressor does not know anything in advance about the properties of the input.

BROTLI_MODE_TEXT

Compression mode for UTF-8 formatted text input.

BROTLI_MODE_FONT

Compression mode used in WOFF 2.0.

enum BrotliEncoderOperation

Operations that can be performed by streaming encoder.

Enumerator

BROTLI_OPERATION_PROCESS

Process input. Encoder may postpone producing output, until it has processed enough input.

BROTLI_OPERATION_FLUSH

Produce output for all processed input. Actual flush is performed when input stream is depleted and there is enough space in output stream. This means that client should repeat BROTLI_OPERATION_FLUSH operation until available_in becomes 0, and BrotliEncoderHasMoreOutput returns BROTLI_FALSE. If output is acquired via BrotliEncoderTakeOutput, then operation should be repeated after output buffer is drained.

Warning:

Until flush is complete, client SHOULD NOT swap, reduce or extend input stream.

When flush is complete, output data will be sufficient for decoder to reproduce all the given input.

BROTLI_OPERATION_FINISH

Finalize the stream. Actual finalization is performed when input stream is depleted and there is enough space in output stream. This means that client should repeat BROTLI_OPERATION_FINISH operation until available_in becomes 0, and BrotliEncoderHasMoreOutput returns BROTLI_FALSE. If output is acquired via BrotliEncoderTakeOutput, then operation should be repeated after output buffer is drained.

Warning:

Until finalization is complete, client SHOULD NOT swap, reduce or extend input stream.

Helper function BrotliEncoderIsFinished checks if stream is finalized and output fully dumped.

Adding more input data to finalized stream is impossible.

BROTLI_OPERATION_EMIT_METADATA

Emit metadata block to stream. Metadata is opaque to Brotli: neither encoder, nor decoder processes this data or relies on it. It may be used to pass some extra information from encoder client to decoder client without interfering with main data stream.

Note:

Encoder may emit empty metadata blocks internally, to pad encoded stream to byte boundary.

Warning:

Until emitting metadata is complete client SHOULD NOT swap, reduce or extend input stream.

The whole content of input buffer is considered to be the content of metadata block. Do NOT append metadata to input stream, before it is depleted with other operations.

Stream is soft-flushed before metadata block is emitted. Metadata block MUST be no longer than than 16MiB.

enum BrotliEncoderParameter

Options to be used with BrotliEncoderSetParameter.

Enumerator

BROTLI_PARAM_MODE

Tune encoder for specific input. BrotliEncoderMode enumerates all available values.

BROTLI_PARAM_QUALITY

The main compression speed-density lever. The higher the quality, the slower the compression. Range is from BROTLI_MIN_QUALITY to BROTLI_MAX_QUALITY.

BROTLI_PARAM_LGWIN

Recommended sliding LZ77 window size. Encoder may reduce this value, e.g. if input is much smaller than window size.

Window size is (1 << value) - 16.

Range is from BROTLI_MIN_WINDOW_BITS to BROTLI_MAX_WINDOW_BITS.

BROTLI_PARAM_LGBLOCK

Recommended input block size. Encoder may reduce this value, e.g. if input is much smaller than input block size.

Range is from BROTLI_MIN_INPUT_BLOCK_BITS to BROTLI_MAX_INPUT_BLOCK_BITS.

Note:

Bigger input block size allows better compression, but consumes more memory.
The rough formula of memory used for temporary input storage is 3 << lgBlock.

BROTLI_PARAM_DISABLE_LITERAL_CONTEXT_MODELING

Flag that affects usage of 'literal context modeling' format feature. This flag is a 'decoding-speed vs compression ratio' trade-off.

BROTLI_PARAM_SIZE_HINT

Estimated total input size for all BrotliEncoderCompressStream calls. The default value is 0, which means that the total input size is unknown.

Function Documentation

BROTLI_BOOL BrotliEncoderCompress (int quality, int lgwin, BrotliEncoderMode mode, size_t input_size, const uint8_t input_buffer[input_size], size_t * encoded_size, uint8_t encoded_buffer[*encoded_size])

Performs one-shot memory-to-memory compression. Compresses the data in input_buffer into encoded_buffer, and sets *encoded_size to the compressed length.

Note:

If BrotliEncoderMaxCompressedSize(input_size) returns non-zero value, then output is guaranteed to be no longer than that.

Parameters:

quality quality parameter value, e.g. BROTLI_DEFAULT_QUALITY
lgwin lgwin parameter value, e.g. BROTLI_DEFAULT_WINDOW
mode mode parameter value, e.g. BROTLI_DEFAULT_MODE
input_size size of input_buffer
input_buffer input data buffer with at least input_size addressable bytes
encoded_size in: size of encoded_buffer;
out: length of compressed data written to encoded_buffer, or 0 if compression fails
encoded_buffer compressed data destination buffer

Returns:

BROTLI_FALSE in case of compression error

BROTLI_FALSE if output buffer is too small

BROTLI_TRUE otherwise

BROTLI_BOOL BrotliEncoderCompressStream (BrotliEncoderState * state, BrotliEncoderOperation op, size_t * available_in, const uint8_t ** next_in, size_t * available_out, uint8_t ** next_out, size_t * total_out)

Compresses input stream to output stream. The values *available_in and *available_out must specify the number of bytes addressable at *next_in and *next_out respectively. When *available_out is 0, next_out is allowed to be NULL.

After each call, *available_in will be decremented by the amount of input bytes consumed, and the *next_in pointer will be incremented by that amount. Similarly, *available_out will be decremented by the amount of output bytes written, and the *next_out pointer will be incremented by that amount.

total_out, if it is not a null-pointer, will be set to the number of bytes decompressed since the last state initialization.

Internally workflow consists of 3 tasks:

1.

(optionally) copy input data to internal buffer

2.

actually compress data and (optionally) store it to internal buffer

3.

(optionally) copy compressed bytes from internal buffer to output stream

Whenever all 3 tasks can't move forward anymore, or error occurs, this method returns the control flow to caller.

op is used to perform flush, finish the stream, or inject metadata block. See BrotliEncoderOperation for more information.

Flushing the stream means forcing encoding of all input passed to encoder and completing the current output block, so it could be fully decoded by stream decoder. To perform flush set op to BROTLI_OPERATION_FLUSH. Under some circumstances (e.g. lack of output stream capacity) this operation would require several calls to BrotliEncoderCompressStream. The method must be called again until both input stream is depleted and encoder has no more output (see BrotliEncoderHasMoreOutput) after the method is called.

Finishing the stream means encoding of all input passed to encoder and adding specific 'final' marks, so stream decoder could determine that stream is complete. To perform finish set op to BROTLI_OPERATION_FINISH. Under some circumstances (e.g. lack of output stream capacity) this operation would require several calls to BrotliEncoderCompressStream. The method must be called again until both input stream is depleted and encoder has no more output (see BrotliEncoderHasMoreOutput) after the method is called.

Warning:

When flushing and finishing, op should not change until operation is complete; input stream should not be swapped, reduced or extended as well.

Parameters:

state encoder instance
op requested operation
available_in in: amount of available input;
out: amount of unused input
next_in pointer to the next input byte
available_out in: length of output buffer;
out: remaining size of output buffer
next_out compressed output buffer cursor; can be NULL if available_out is 0
total_out number of bytes produced so far; can be NULL

Returns:

BROTLI_FALSE if there was an error

BROTLI_TRUE otherwise

BrotliEncoderState* BrotliEncoderCreateInstance (brotli_alloc_func alloc_func, brotli_free_func free_func, void * opaque)

Creates an instance of BrotliEncoderState and initializes it. alloc_func and free_func MUST be both zero or both non-zero. In the case they are both zero, default memory allocators are used. opaque is passed to alloc_func and free_func when they are called.

Parameters:

alloc_func custom memory allocation function
free_func custom memory fee function
opaque custom memory manager handle

Returns:

0 if instance can not be allocated or initialized

pointer to initialized BrotliEncoderState otherwise

void BrotliEncoderDestroyInstance (BrotliEncoderState * state)

Deinitializes and frees BrotliEncoderState instance.

Parameters:

state decoder instance to be cleaned up and deallocated

BROTLI_BOOL BrotliEncoderHasMoreOutput (BrotliEncoderState * state)

Checks if encoder has more output.

Parameters:

state encoder instance

Returns:

BROTLI_TRUE, if encoder has some unconsumed output

BROTLI_FALSE otherwise

BROTLI_BOOL BrotliEncoderIsFinished (BrotliEncoderState * state)

Checks if encoder instance reached the final state.

Parameters:

state encoder instance

Returns:

BROTLI_TRUE if encoder is in a state where it reached the end of the input and produced all of the output

BROTLI_FALSE otherwise

size_t BrotliEncoderMaxCompressedSize (size_t input_size)

Calculates the output size bound for the given input_size.

Warning:

Result is not applicable to BrotliEncoderCompressStream output, because every 'flush' adds extra overhead bytes, and some encoder settings (e.g. quality 0 and 1) might imply a 'soft flush' after every chunk of input.

Parameters:

input_size size of projected input

Returns:

0 if result does not fit size_t

BROTLI_BOOL BrotliEncoderSetParameter (BrotliEncoderState * state, BrotliEncoderParameter param, uint32_t value)

Sets the specified parameter to the given encoder instance.

Parameters:

state encoder instance
param parameter to set
value new parameter value

Returns:

BROTLI_FALSE if parameter is unrecognized, or value is invalid

BROTLI_FALSE if value of parameter can not be changed at current encoder state (e.g. when encoding is started, window size might be already encoded and therefore it is impossible to change it)

BROTLI_TRUE if value is accepted

Warning:

invalid values might be accepted in case they would not break encoding process.

const uint8_t* BrotliEncoderTakeOutput (BrotliEncoderState * state, size_t * size)

Acquires pointer to internal output buffer. This method is used to make language bindings easier and more efficient:

1.

push data to BrotliEncoderCompressStream, until BrotliEncoderHasMoreOutput returns BROTL_TRUE

2.

use BrotliEncoderTakeOutput to peek bytes and copy to language-specific entity

Also this could be useful if there is an output stream that is able to consume all the provided data (e.g. when data is saved to file system).

Attention:

After every call to BrotliEncoderTakeOutput *size bytes of output are considered consumed for all consecutive calls to the instance methods; returned pointer becomes invalidated as well.

Note:

Encoder output is not guaranteed to be contiguous. This means that after the size-unrestricted call to BrotliEncoderTakeOutput, immediate next call to BrotliEncoderTakeOutput may return more data.

Parameters:

state encoder instance
size in: number of bytes caller is ready to take, 0 if any amount could be handled;
out: amount of data pointed by returned pointer and considered consumed;
out value is never greater than in value, unless it is 0

Returns:

pointer to output data

uint32_t BrotliEncoderVersion (void)

Gets an encoder library version. Look at BROTLI_VERSION for more information.
