This directory contains a .Net wrapper class library for the ZLib1.dll

The wrapper includes support for inflating/deflating memory buffers, 
.Net streaming wrappers for the gz streams part of zlib, and wrappers
for the checksum parts of zlib. See DotZLib/UnitTests.cs for examples.

Directory structure:

LICENSE_1_0.txt       - License file.
readme.txt            - This file.
DotZLib.chm           - Class library documentation         - NAnt build file
DotZLib.sln           - Microsoft Visual Studio 2003 solution file

DotZLib\*.cs          - Source files for the class library

Unit tests:
The file DotZLib/UnitTests.cs contains unit tests for use with NUnit 2.1 or higher.
To include unit tests in the build, define nunit before building.

Build instructions:

1. Using Visual Studio.Net 2003:
   Open DotZLib.sln in VS.Net and build from there. Output file (DotZLib.dll)
   will be found ./DotZLib/bin/release or ./DotZLib/bin/debug, depending on 
   you are building the release or debug version of the library. Check 
   DotZLib/UnitTests.cs for instructions on how to include unit tests in the
2. Using NAnt:
   Open a command prompt with access to the build environment and run nant
   in the same directory as the file.
   You can define 2 properties on the nant command-line to control the build:
   debug={true|false} to toggle between release/debug builds (default=true).
   nunit={true|false} to include or esclude unit tests (default=true).
   Also the target clean will remove binaries.
   Output file (DotZLib.dll) will be found in either ./DotZLib/bin/release 
   or ./DotZLib/bin/debug, depending on whether you are building the release 
   or debug version of the library.

     nant -D:debug=false -D:nunit=false
       will build a release mode version of the library without unit tests.
       will build a debug version of the library with unit tests 
     nant clean
       will remove all previously built files.
