zlib: Compression and decompression in the gzip and zlib formats

[ bsd3, codec, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

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.

Flags

NameDescriptionDefaultType
non-blocking-ffi

The (de)compression calls can sometimes take a long time, which prevents other Haskell threads running. Enabling this flag avoids this unfairness, but with greater overall cost.

DisabledManual
pkg-config

Use pkg-config(1) to locate foreign zlib library.

DisabledManual

Use -f <flag> to enable a flag, or -f -<flag> to disable that flag. More info
