ODOL

OFP ODOL format is called v7 (while ArmA is called v40). This document discusses OFP ODOL.

Overall

// uint unsigned integer 32bit
// word unsigned short integer 16bit
// Note that potentically compressed arrays in these structures only have an known output length.
// the decompressor therefore must work on infinite input length.
// see example decompression at end of document

LZ in ODOL

Lempel-Ziv compression

Note1.

Rregardless of method, 4 extra bytes representing the checksum exist at end of the data count.

Note2. The compression code is identical to that employed by pbo packed structures. However, unlike pbo's, the size of the compressed data is unknown, only it's ultimate length. The code below fudges it.

Pascal Code

function LZBlockRead(var F:file; var outdata:array of byte;szout:integer):byte;
var
k, r, pr, pi,po,i,j:integer;
flags:word;
buf:array[0..$100e] of byte;
c:byte;
crc:integer;
begin
po:=0;
pi:=0;
flags:=0;
r:=0;
for k := 0 to $100F-1 do buf[k] := $20;
       while (po < szout) do
        begin
           flags:= flags shr 1;
           if ((flags and $100)= 0) then
               begin
                 BlockRead(F,c,1);   // direct reading from file
                 inc(pi);
                 flags := c or $ff00;
               end;
           if (flags and 1)=1 then
                begin
                  if (po >= szout)then break;
                  BlockRead(F,c,1);   // direct reading from file
                  inc(pi);
                  outdata[po] := c;
                  inc(po);
                  buf[r] := c;
                  inc(r);
                  r :=r and $fff;

           else
                begin

                    begin
                      c := buf[(pr - i + k) and $fff];
                      if (po >= szout) then break;
