Fast compression for Haskell ByteStrings
This library implements Haskell bindings to QuickLZ, a fast compression library. The interface is very simple:
compress :: ByteString -> ByteString decompress :: ByteString -> ByteString decompress' :: ByteString -> ByteString -- overlapping decompression
As the name states, QuickLZ is fast - at both compression and decompression. Per their own benchmarks, at compression level 1, QuickLZ 1.5.0 has a compression speed of 308Mbyte/s, and a decompression speed of 358Mbyte/s (their benchmarks, Core i7 920.)
Just use cabal:
cabal install quicklz
File bugs in the GitHub issue tracker.
Master git repository:
git clone https://github.com/thoughtpolice/hs-quicklz.git

This package has some benchmarks and tests associated - I would like to expand the benchmarks to include bigger data sets in the future.
There is currently only an interface for strict
I would like to implement the streaming mode functionality sometime in the future, perhaps tying it to John Millikin's enumerator package.
