./archivers/lz4, Extremely Fast Compression algorithm

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.8.1.2, Package name: lz4-1.8.1.2, Maintainer: filip

LZ4 is a very fast lossless compression algorithm, providing
compression speed at 400 MB/s per core, scalable with multi-cores
CPU. It also features an extremely fast decoder, with speed in
multiple GB/s per core, typically reaching RAM speed limits on
multi-core systems.

lz4: updated to 1.8.1.2

v1.8.1.2:
It's the same as v1.8.1, but the version number in source code has been fixed.
The version number is used in cli and documentation display, to create the full \ 
name of dynamic library, and can be requested via LZ4_versionNumber().
