class OCompressStream

Bases: ostream

An input stream object that uses zlib to compress (deflate) data to another destination stream on-the-fly.

Attach an OCompressStream to an existing ostream that will accept compressed data, and write your uncompressed source data to the OCompressStream.

Seeking is not supported.
