Subject: [boost] filtering_streambuf: Compressing a character buffer
From: Adlai Shawareb (adlai_at_[hidden])

I have a character buffer ( "buffer" ) of known size ( "size_in_bytes" ), and would like to compress it using gzip_compressor and then get a pointer to the compressed buffer along with the compressed size.
I've put together the following, but it says the first counter is 0 and the second counter is 2.
Any help that can be offered is appreciated.
namespace io = boost::iostreams;
os.write( buffer, size_in_bytes );
io::close(out); // Needed for flushing the data from compressor
std::ostream output(&out); // Maybe I can use rdbuf() to get the pointer to the stream?
