Overview

The Datastream class represents a PNG formatted datastream. It supports both reading from and writing to strings, streams and files.

A PNG datastream begins with the PNG signature, and then contains multiple chunks, starting with a header (IHDR) chunk and finishing with an end (IEND) chunk.

See Also:

Constant Summary

SIGNATURE =

The signature that each PNG file or stream should begin with.

.verify_signature!(io) ⇒ Object

Verifies that the current stream is a PNG datastream by checking its signature.

This method reads the PNG signature from the stream, setting the current position of the stream directly after the signature, where the IHDR chunk should begin.

Parameters:

  • io (IO)

    The stream to read the PNG signature from.

Raises:

  • (RuntimeError)

    An exception is raised if the PNG signature is not found at the beginning of the stream.

  unless ChunkyPNG.force_binary(signature) == ChunkyPNG::Datastream::SIGNATURE
    raise ChunkyPNG::SignatureMismatch, "PNG signature not found, found #{signature.inspect} instead of #{ChunkyPNG::Datastream::SIGNATURE.inspect}!"
