This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.
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

Master git repository:

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.
