The archivers/lzo port
lzo-1.08p4 – portable speedy lossless data compression library
LZO is a data compression library which is suitable for data
de-/compression in real-time. This means it favours speed over
LZO implements a number of algorithms with the following features:
+ Decompression is simple and *very* fast.
+ Requires no memory for decompression.
+ Compression is pretty fast.
+ Requires 64 kB of memory for compression.
+ Allows you to dial up extra compression at a speed cost in the
compressor. The speed of the decompressor is not reduced.
+ Includes compression levels for generating pre-compressed data
which achieve a quite competitive compression ratio.
+ There is also a compression level which needs only 8 kB for
+ Algorithm is thread safe.
+ Algorithm is lossless.
