How to decompress solid archives in memory fast?

Mar 14, 2011 at 1:09 PM


I wrote a code piece like below to extract an a solid archive in memory.
(Of course, it's just for exam.)

ext = new SevenZipExtractor(@"D:\boost_1_46_1.7z"); for (int i = 0; i < ext.FilesCount; ++i) { Console.WriteLine(ext.ArchiveFileNames[i]); using (var ms = new MemoryStream()) { ext.ExtractFile(i, ms); } }

But it's very slow. It takes a few seconds per file.

ExtractFile method totally not work in my system... why?

The solid archive can only speed up if each extract item is cached, but SevenZipSharp can't do that yet.

But theoretically the extractAll() should work fast (just that I haven't tested myself).

This is a really needed function, I hope it gets implemented soon.
