I am tasked with reading a binary file. The documentation of the file format indicates that segments of the file may have ZLIB compression applied. For the parts that are not compressed, I am using BinaryReader which works fine. Basically, I want something ZLibBinaryReader that I can use to inflate the compressed data, but using API like ReadInt32, ReadSingle, etc.
Can anyone recommend a free open source library like this? I do not need to open entire compressed files, but I will have offset in file stream to start of compressed data, and want to start inflating the compressed data for some byteLength.

Note however, that the stream written by zlib contains a header and a trailing checksum. DeflateStream only decompresses the raw data.
