lzip: Lzip compression / Lzlib bindings

[ codec, compression, gpl, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

Lzip is a data compression format based on LZMA (Lempel–Ziv–Markov chain algorithm).

The Lzip file format is designed for data sharing and long-term archiving, taking into account both data integrity and decoder availability (see the Lzlib homepage for more details).

This package provides low-level FFI bindings to the Lzlib C library as well as a monadic ByteString-based mid-level API for the IO and ST monads.
