Implement a RAW file reader

Laurent Petre requested to merge feature/raw-event-reader into main


From the commit message:

The reader class reads one event at a time from a RAW file. The reader is able to automatically detect if the file is uncompressed or ZSTD compressed. In the later case, it is decompressed on the fly.

Related Issue
