#75 confirmed task

Add extracting of ArmyBuilder files

Reported by: ibboard Owned by:

Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking: #83


The current Army Builder API can read the file table for .ab files, but the initial code for extracting won't work - all supported compression formats fail. To make Army Builder support as useful as possible we need to be able to read data from .ab files.

As per the wiki page, it looks like the files may be compressed using a proprietary "Greenleaf Compressor" as Lone Wolf Development used a library from Greenleaf that does support PKZip, but also supports its own format.

Remove owner so that the team can more easily see bugs. Using default owners seems good at first but is bad practice when a team can be working on any part of the project.

Moved to milestone 0.2 as we know what the compression is (Greenleaf's custom compression) but not how to decompress it. #136 gives us a better starting point to work from.
