To use this library you need zlib library.
You can get it from http://www.gzip.org/zlib/


Loading the library:

    If you built the library as a loadable package
        [local] zlib = require 'zlib'

    If you compiled the package statically into your application, call
    the function "luaopen_zlib(L)". It will create a table with the zlib
    functions and leave it on the stack.

-- zlib functions --

zlib.version()
	returns zlib version

zlib.adler32([int adler32, string buffer])
	Without any parameters, returns the inicial adler32 value.

	Call to update the adler32 value, adler is the current value, buffer is passed
	to adler32 zlib function and the updated value is returned.

zlib.crc32([int crc32, string buffer])
	Same as zlib.adler32.

zlib.compress(string buffer [, int level] [, int method] [, int windowBits] [, int memLevel] [, int strategy])
	Return a string containing the compressed buffer according to the given parameters.

zlib.decompress(string buffer [, int windowBits])
	Return the decompressed stream after processing the given buffer.


zlib.deflate(
	sink: function | { write: function [, close: function, flush: function ] },
	compression level, [Z_DEFAILT_COMPRESSION]
	method, [Z_DEFLATED]
	windowBits, [15]
	memLevel, [8]
	strategy, [Z_DEFAULT_STRATEGY]
	dictionary, [""]
)
	Return a deflate stream.

	stream:read((number | '*l' | '*a')*)
		Return a value for each given parameter. Returns a line when
		no format is specified.

	stream:lines()
		Return iterator that returns a line each time it is called, or nil
		on end of file.

	stream:close()
		Close the stream.

zlib.inflate(
	source: string | function | { read: function, close: function },
	windowBits: number, [15]
	dictionary, [""]
)
	Return an inflate stream.


deflate and inflate streams can be used almost like a normal file:

	stream:write(...)
		Write each parameter into the sream.

	stream:read([option [, ...]])
		Read from the stream, each parameter corresponds to
			a return value.
		
		With no arguments, it reads a line.
		Parameters are interpreted as follows:
		  number - reads the specified number of bytes
		  'a' - reads the remaining bytes
		  'l' - reads a line

	stream:lines(...)
		Returns an iterator that returns a new line each time
			it is called.

	stream:flush(['sync' | 'full' | 'finish'])
		Flush output for deflate streams.

	stream:close()
		Close the stream.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
