BE_ContainerCompress

BE_ContainerCompress ( data {; filename } )

 

Converts stored container field data between the internal un-compressed and "compressed" formats.

When inserting files into containers in FileMaker, you have the option to "compress" the file.  This function can change an uncompressed file into a compressed file.

 

Version 3.2 : Changed name to BE_ContainerCompress

Version 3.1 : Added.

 

Parameters :

data : the uncompressed container field.

filename : the filename to use.  If left out, the plugin will attempt to return text, which probably won't work for most uses of gzip.

 

Notes : the internal compression format is gzip.

 

Result : a container field with the contents of data gzipped.  Check the value of the BE_GetLastError function for errors.
