Status

Usages

  • For reading multi-volume files, that has names archive.7z.0001, archive.7z.0002 and so on, you can call multivolumefile as follows;

with multivolumefile.open('archive.7z', 'rb') as vol:
    data = vol.read(100)
    vol.seek(500)
  • For writing multi-volue files, that has names archive.7z.0001, archive.7z.0002 and so on, you can call multivolumefile as follows;

data = b'abcdefg'
with multivolumefile.open('archive.7z', 'wb') as vol:
    size = vol.write(data)
    vol.seek(0)

you will see file archive.7z.001 are written.
