Gzip

Gzip (RFC 1952) is a thin wrapper around raw deflate (RFC 1951). Gzip is similar to zlib (RFC 1950), but with a different wire format and checksum algorithm.

Gzip is used as an HTTP compression format and as a standalone file format for the gzip, gunzip and zcat utility programs.

TODO: a worked example.
