Using the free zip library in VBA

Software

In a previous post I briefly explained how you can compile the free zlib library with Visual 2013 Studio and produce a 32 and a 64 bits dll that you can then use in VBA (Word, Excel, Access, etc…). If you follow this link to the article, you can even download the binaries I baked.

However, to use these dlls in a real world project, we need to wrap them in some 32/64 bits VBA code.
Inspired by samples I found on the web, here a quickly reusable module for your VBA projects.
Look at the TestXXXX procedures (change the pathes and filenames, of course, and execute them in the immediate window) for some samples.

Enjoy!
