Read the header from an open HF2/HFZ file.

Function prototype

long hfzReadHeader(hfzFile* fs, hfzHeader& fh);


Name Type Description
fs hfzFile* A handle to an open hfzFile struct (see hfzOpen).
fh hfzHeader& The hfzHeader struct into which the file header data will be read.

Return value

LIBHFZ_STATUS_OK if the header was read successfully, and otherwise an error code. Use hfzGetErrorStr to retrieve the error description.


Remember to de-allocate the hfzHeader struct!

Afer calling hfzReadHeader, fh may contain handles memory that must be freed by the caller. Once you are finished with the header, call hfzHeader_Reset to release this memory.
