Inflater setInput() function in Java with examples


The setInput() function of the Inflater class is used to set input data for uncompression. This function should be called when needsInput() returns true indicating input buffer is empty.

Function Signature:

public void setInput(byte[] b)
public void setInput(byte[] b, int offset, int len)

Syntax:



i.setInput(byte[]);
i.setInput(byte[], int, int);

Parameter: The various parameters accepted by these overloaded functions are:

  • byte[] b: This is the input array that is to be inflated
  • int offset: This is the starting offset from which the values are to be read in the given array
  • int length: This is the maximum length to be compressed from the starting offset.

Return Type: The function has no return value

Exception: The function does not throw any exception
