multi volume file wrapper library
MultiVolumefile is a python library to provide a file-object wrapping multiple files as virtually like as a single file. It inherit io.RawIOBase class and support some of its standard methods.
See API details at python library reference
multivolumefile module is under active development and considered as *Alpha* state. It is not good idea to use it on production systems, but it may work well in a limited range of usage. Please check limitations and passed test cases.
You can install it as usual public libraries, you can use pip command
` pip install multivolumefile `
You are also able to add it to your setup.py/cfg as dependency.
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.
