go-lz4

go-lz4 is port of LZ4 lossless compression algorithm to Go. The original C code is located at:

https://github.com/Cyan4973/lz4

Status

Build Status
GoDoc

Usage

go get github.com/bkaradzic/go-lz4

import "github.com/bkaradzic/go-lz4"

The package name is lz4

Notes

  • go-lz4 saves a uint32 with the original uncompressed length at the beginning of the encoded buffer. They may get in the way of interoperability with other implementations.
