Geek Week

The getTotalOut() function of the Deflater class in returns the total number of compressed bytes Output provided till now.

Function Signature:

public int getTotalOut()



Parameter: The function requires no parameter

Return Type: The function returns an int value which is the total number of compressed bytes Output.

Exception: The function does not throw any exception

Example 1:

// Java program to describe the use
// of getTotalOut() function
class GFG {
    public static void main(String args[])
        throws UnsupportedEncodingException
        // deflater
        Deflater d = new Deflater();
        // get the text
        String pattern = "GeeksforGeeks", text = "";
        // generate the text
        for (int i = 0; i < 4; i++)
            text += pattern;
        // set the Input for deflator
        // finish
        // output bytes
        byte output[] = new byte[1024];
        // compress the data
        int size = d.deflate(output);
        // compressed String
        System.out.println("Compressed String :"
                           + new String(output)
                           + "\n Size " + size);
        // original String
        System.out.println("Original String :"
                           + text + "\n Size "
                           + text.length());
        // get the total number of
        // compressed bytes Output so far
        System.out.println("Total Output value :"
                           + d.getTotalOut());
        // end


Compressed String :x?sOM?.N?/r???q??
 Size 21
Original String :GeeksforGeeksGeeksforGeeksGeeksforGeeksGeeksforGeeks
 Size 52
Total Output value :21

Note: The problem arises when the length of the input is greater than Integer.MAX_VALUE. Then the result may overflow, we should use getBytesRead() function instead
