I am wondering how do Protocol Buffers read input files? Is the entire
file read into memory or some proxy technique is used and entries are
read only when required?
This is a vital feature for large lists, say, some dataset with 10^9
Do Protocol Buffers use any additional archiving technique (zip, tar,
etc.) to further compress saved information?
