(Node.js) Decompress Large Text File in Blocks

Decompresses a large text file in blocks, and compares the restored (decompressed) file with the original to make sure it's correct.

Install Chilkat for Node.js and Electron using npm at

Chilkat npm packages for Node.js

on Windows, Linux, MacOSX, and ARM
