The inflateInit_() function shall initialize the decompression system. On entry, stream shall refer to a user supplied z_stream object (a z_stream_s structure). The following fields shall be set on entry:
a pointer to an alloc_func function, used to allocate state information.
If this is
a pointer to a free_func function, used to free memory allocated by the
If the version requested is not compatible with the version
implemented, or if the size of the z_stream_s structure
provided in stream_size does not match the size in the library
implementation, inflateInit_() shall fail, and return
The inflateInit_() function is not in the source standard; it is only in the binary standard. Source applications should use the inflateInit() macro.
The inflateInit_() shall be equivalent to
inflateInit2_(strm, MAX_WBITS, version, stream_size);
On success, the inflateInit_() function shall return
Otherwise, inflateInit_() shall return
a value as described below to indicate the error.
On error, inflateInit_() shall return one of the following error indicators:
Insufficient memory available.
The version requested is not compatible with the library version, or the z_stream size differs from that used by the library.
In addition, the
msg field of the strm
may be set to an error message.
