./archivers/hs-zlib, Compression and decompression in the gzip and zlib formats

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.6.2.1, Package name: hs-zlib-0.6.2.1, Maintainer: pho

This package provides a pure interface for compressing and decompressing
streams of data represented as lazy ByteStrings. It uses the zlib C library
so it has high performance. It supports the "zlib", "gzip" and "raw"
compression formats.

It provides a convenient high level API suitable for most tasks and for the
few cases where more control is needed it provides access to the full zlib
feature set.
