This is a substitute for the well known zlib compression library. Not that zlib does not work, but I was just not in the mood to fathom a messed up interface. Thus, from quite old templates of previous studies, I compiled this library, which provides
  • simple interface, both for memory mapped data and for files
  • RFC 1951, RFC 1952 compliance
  • thread safe implementation
  • three layer modular design
  • designed to avoid malloc, to match MMU less system, bootloader, or similar
  • options to do without glibc at all
  • options to do without encoder or decoder

The current version is not yet optimised for speed.
