Pascal source ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Block format ----------------- The whole archive consists of blocks which vary in size. Structure: bytes meaning discription 2 HEAD_CRC CRC16 over block up from HEAD_TYPE 2 HEAD_SIZE size of the block from HEAD_TYPE up to the beginning of the ADDSIZE block 1 HEAD_TYPE indicates type of block (see chapter 2.) 2 HEAD_FLAGS flags related to the block and its content for all blocks these flags are valid: bit discription 0 ADDSIZE field present 1 Block includes a comment [4] ADDSIZE an optional field which represents the size of an additional block without specified structure (no HEAD_CRC, HEAD_SIZE etc.) ? OTHER FIELDS 2. Block types ---------------- 2.1. Archive header --------------------- The archive header is the first block of each archive or volume. Structure: bytes meaning discription 2 HEAD_CRC CRC16 over block up from HEAD_TYPE 2 HEAD_SIZE size of the block from HEAD_TYPE up to the last byte of this block 1 HEAD_TYPE archive header type is 0 2 HEAD_FLAGS contains most important information about the archive bit discription 0 0 (no ADDSIZE field) 1 presence of a main comment 9 SFX-archive 10 dictionary size limited to 256K (because of a junior SFX) 11 archive consists of multiple volumes 12 main header contains AV-string 13 recovery record present 14 archive is locked 15 archive is solid 7 ACESIGN fixed string: '**ACE**' serves to find the archive header 1 VER_EXTRACT version needed to extract archive 1 VER_CREATED version used to create the archive 1 HOST_CREATED HOST-OS for ACE used to create the archive value host 0 MS-DOS 1 OS/2 2 Win32 3 Unix 4 MAC-OS 5 Win NT 6 Primos 7 APPLE GS 8 ATARI 9 VAX VMS 10 AMIGA 11 NEXT 1 VOLUME_NUM which volume of a multi-volume-archive is it? 4 TIME_CREATED date and time in MS-DOS format 8 RESERVED 8 bytes reserved for the future [1] AV_SIZE size of the following AV string [?] AV the AV string itself [2] COMMENT_SIZE compressed size of the following comment [?] COMMENT compressed data of comment ? RESERVED Comments are compressed using simple LZP+Huffman. 2.2. File block ----------------- Directories are stored in this type of block, too. There is no extra block structure. Structure: bytes meaning discription 2 HEAD_CRC CRC16 over block up from HEAD_TYPE 2 HEAD_SIZE size of the block up from HEAD_TYPE up to the beginning of the compressed data 1 HEAD_TYPE file header type is 1 2 HEAD_FLAGS bit discription 0 1 (ADDSIZE field present) 1 presence of file comment 12 file continued from previous volume 13 file continues on the next volume 14 file encrypted with password 15 solid-flag: file compressed using data of previous files of the archive 4 PACK_SIZE this is the ADDSIZE field; the additional block contains compressed file data without exception 4 ORIG_SIZE the original size of the file 4 FTIME file date and file time in MS-DOS format 4 ATTR attributes of the file 4 CRC32 checksum over the compressed file 4 TECH_INFO bytes 1 type of compression 0 store 1 ACE_LZ77_1 1 quality of compression 0 fastest 1 fast 2 normal 3 good 4 best 2 parameter for decompression 2 RESERVED 2 FNAME_SIZE size of filename string in bytes 1 FNAME filename string (OEM) [2] COMM_SIZE compressed size of file comment [?] COMMENT file comment ? RESERVED ------------------------------------------- compressed file data (size is PACK_SIZE) 2.3. Recovery record ---------------------- The protection by recovery records works this way: See the whole archive as a sequence of blocks with a defined length. Build checksums over these blocks to determine (later) whether a block has been damaged or not. Xor all blocks to one. Save this xor-block and the checksums. To restore a damaged block all undamaged blocks have to be xor'd with the xor-block. Structure: 2 HEAD_CRC CRC16 over block up from HEAD_TYPE 2 HEAD_SIZE size of the block up from HEAD_TYPE 1 HEAD_TYPE header type of recovery records is 2 2 HEAD_FLAGS bit discription 0 1 (ADDSIZE field present) 4 REC_BLK_SIZE ADDSIZE field; size of recovery data 7 ACESIGN string: '**ACE**'; allows search for this block with destroyed archive structure 4 REL_STRT relative start (to this block) of the data this block is mode of 4 NUM_BLKS number of blocks the data is splitten in 4 CL_SIZE size of these blocks 2 REC_CRC CRC16 over recovery data ------------------------ recovery data: 2 1st CRC16 CRC over the first block of the archive 2 2nd CRC16 CRC over the second block of the archive . . . . 2 NUM_BLKSth CRC16 CRC over the last block (up to the recovery record) of the archive CL_SIZE XOR-DATA contains the xor'd data of all the blocks the archive has been splitten in for this process 3. Archive processing ----------------------- For processing an archive you first need to get the start offset of it in a certain file. The way to do so is: 1.) search for the acesign ('**ACE**') 2.) read a block from (acesign_position-7) (because the acesign is at offset 7 in the archive header) 3.) build the checksum of this block and check it against HEAD_CRC; if they do not match go to step 1.) After you got the start you can read one block after another like this: 1.) read HEAD_CRC and HEAD_SIZE 2.) read HEAD_SIZE bytes; build the CRC of them and check it against HEAD_CRC; the archive is broken if the CRCs do not match 3.) interpret the contents of the block 4.) skip ADDSIZE bytes if ADDSIZE is present Do so until the EOF of the archive. See next chapter how to build CRCs. 4. Building CRCs ------------------ This chapter contains sources how to build a "CRC32". The full 32 bits are needed at the file checksums only. In the headers there are only the lower 16 bits of a CRC32 value saved. To initialize "getcrc" just call "make_crc_table". To get a CRC of a block inititalize your CRC variable with CRC_MASK. Then use getcrc to update this variable. example how to check the CRC of an header: make_crctable(); // only once ... crc=CRC_MASK; // initialize CRC crc=getcrc(crc,&head.HEAD_TYPE,head.HEAD_SIZE); // update CRC // check lower 16 bits if (UWORD(crc)!=UWORD(head.HEAD_CRC)) error_archive_broken(); 4.1.
