    Does anyone know of a compression/decompression library that, with a
    unified interface, wraps the most common compression formats (gzip,
    bzip2, lzma, ...) similar to what gstreamer, ffmpeg and libfreeimage
    does for image and video files?

    I just want a handle from which to read bytes or blocks of bytes from
    a compressed file or buffer and underlying backend optimally
    decompresses the related compressed blocks.

    If its iostream compatible it's a bonus.

    Thanks in advance,
    Nordlöw

    libarchive2. It is C library that is BSD licensed.
