Since we now have all this gzip machinery in place,
would it be easy to add gzip option to fopen()?
That is, I would like to be able to do something like:

fid = fopen("data.dat.gz","rz")
a = fscanf(fid,"%f")


Just asking...


Something like that is relatively easy, as gzopen just a C file descriptor. If the file isn't zipped it is just treated normally...
I don't have any plans to implement it though..
