Revision 3. </p> <p>The standard zipfile module provides only a method to extract the entire content of a file from within a zip-file. This extension adds a generator method to iterate over the lines in a file, avoiding the memory problems.</p> InMemoryZip class (Python) 2013-09-23T06:44:23-07:00Thomas Lehmannhttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/4174477/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/578667-inmemoryzip-class/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 578667 by <a href="/recipes/users/4174477/">Thomas Lehmann</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/file/">file</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/memory/">memory</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/path/">path</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/zip/">zip</a>). </p> <p><strong>Why implementing this?</strong></p> <ul> <li>transfering a file or a folder (including sub folders) to another machine</li> <li>therefore zipping content to one compressed buffer</li> <li>keeping the relating ZIP in memory only but ...</li> <li>being able to save or load too</li> <li>and being able to unzip again at target destination</li> </ul> xzip - Iterative zip function for very large collections (Python) 2009-03-30T14:54:40-07:00Tucker Beckhttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/4169378/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/576703-xzip-iterative-zip-function-for-very-large-collect/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 576703 by <a href="/recipes/users/4169378/">Tucker Beck</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/generator/">generator</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/iterative_zip/">iterative_zip</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/zip/">zip</a>). </p> <p>The xzip function provides the same functionality as zip (python builtin), but utilizes a generator list comprehension so that zipped collections can be accessed iteratively.</p> <p>Example: for t in xzip( xrange( 1000000 ), xrange( 1000000, 2000000, 1 ), xrange( 888,100000000, 1 ): print t</p> <p>This Will begin to produce output immediately, because the collections are zipped iteratively The output of this code is exactly equivalent to:</p> <p>for t in zip( xrange( 1000000 ), xrange( 1000000, 2000000, 1 ), xrange( 888,100000000, 1 ): print t</p> <p>However, the second block (using zip) must first build the zipped collection entirely before the for loop can iterate over it. This could take a long time.</p> <p>Note, I used xrange here so that we don't have to wait for python to build the initial lists. The xzip function would probably show its usefulness most if one had several huge collections that needed to be combined iteratively.</p> <p>I developed this function to zip long lists ( &gt;100000 ) of vertex triples with color triples in a volume visualizer.</p> ZipScript: Build a directly executable zipped Python script set (Python) 2010-02-11T15:32:38-08:00Glennhttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/4171639/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/577042-zipscript-build-a-directly-executable-zipped-pytho/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 577042 by <a href="/recipes/users/4171639/">Glenn</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/package/">package</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/script/">script</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/zip/">zip</a>).

By the way, this do not need creation temporary files. OK, how does it work? Maybe you heard about conditional compilation in JScript, so you must be familiar with this trick. Take a look at this:</p>
