You don't need to dissect the header manually to look for that bit.
If you feed inflate() at least the first two bytes, it will return
immediately with the Z_NEED_DICT return code if a preset dictionary
is requested. You can force inflate() to return immediately after
decoding the two byte header even if a preset dictionary is not
requested by using the Z_BLOCK flush code.
