So gb.compress is limited to only blind single file archives, no archive
contents listing, no accessing / unpacking multiple files inside the
and unpacked filename must be already known/assumed as there's no way to
read archive contents?

seems like a lot of library for very little functionality.

Could do with Uncompress.Dir() to list archive contents
and then a way to extract single internal files like
Uncompress.Extract(Path, Dest)

sadly the component is written in C not gambas so it's beyond my tweaking.
