./archivers/lz4, Extremely Fast Compression algorithm

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.8.0, Package name: lz4-1.8.0, 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.

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for archivers category

Problems found with existing distfile for eagle:
No changes made to these distinfo files.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.
