"A massively spiffy yet delicately unobtrusive compression library."
'zlib' is a free, general-purpose, legally unencumbered lossless
data-compression library. 'zlib' implements the "deflate" compression
algorithm described by RFC 1951, which combines the LZ77 (Lempel-Ziv)
algorithm with Huffman coding. zlib also implements the zlib (RFC 1950) and
gzip (RFC 1952) wrapper formats.
Local Modifications:
The files in this directory have been prepared as follows.
- Take the unmodified source code files from the zlib distribution that are
included by `ftgzip.c`.
- Run zlib's `zlib2ansi` script on all `.c` files.
- Apply the diff file(s) in the `patches` folder.
