Make BZIP compressed files splittable

    XMLWordPrintableJSON

    Details

      Description

      Bzip2 is compressed as blocks, so it should be possible to do dynamic splitting. To do this: Seek to a location in the bzip, then keep seeking until you find the 6 byte block-start sequence 0x314159265359 (which is the 12 digit approximation of pi). You can use a bzip2 decompressor from that point onwards.
