I have a large (gigabytes) file which is encoded in UTF-8 and then
compressed with gzip. I'd like to read it with the "gzip" module
and "utf8" decoding. The obvious approach is
fd = gzip.open(fname, 'rb',encoding='utf8')
But "gzip.open" doesn't support an "encoding" parameter. (It
probably should, for consistency.) Is there some way to do this?
Is it possible to express "unzip, then decode utf8" via
