This module provides fast, pure zero-copy compression and
decompression of lazy
ByteString data using the Snappy format.
Although these functions operate on lazy
consume the data strictly: they do not produce any output until
they have consumed all of the input, and they produce the output in
a single large chunk.
If your data is already in the form of a lazy
ByteString, it is
likely more efficient to use these functions than to convert your
data to and from strict ByteStrings, as you can avoid the
additional allocation and copying that would entail.
