To use this library, you need zlib, get it here:
http://www.gzip.org/zlib/
To build this library, you can use CMake and get it here:
http://www.cmake.org/cmake/resources/software.html
...or you can use GNU Make.
make <platform>
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 --
major, minor, patch = zlib.version()
returns numeric zlib version for the major, minor, and patch
levels of the version dynamically linked in.
function stream = zlib.deflate([ int compression_level ])
If no compression_level is provided uses Z_DEFAULT_COMPRESSION (6),
compression level is a number from 1-9 where zlib.BEST_SPEED is 1
and zlib.BEST_COMPRESSION is 9.
Returns a "stream" function that compresses (or deflates) all
strings passed in. Specifically, use it as such:
string deflated, bool eof, number bytes_in number bytes_out =
stream(string input [, 'sync' | 'full' | 'finish'])
Takes input and deflates and returns a portion of it,
optionally forcing a flush.
A 'sync' flush will force all pending output to be flushed to
the return value and the output is aligned on a byte boundary,
so that the decompressor can get all input data available so
far. Flushing may degrade compression for some compression
algorithms and so it should be used only when necessary.
A 'full' flush will flush all output as with 'sync', and the
compression state is reset so that decompression can restart
from this point if previous compressed data has been damaged
or if random access is desired. Using Z_FULL_FLUSH too often
can seriously degrade the compression.
A 'finish' flush will force all pending output to be processed
and results in the stream become unusable. Any future
attempts to print anything other than the empty string will
result in an error that begins with IllegalState.
The eof result is true if 'finish' was specified, otherwise
it is false.
The bytes_in is how many bytes of input have been passed to
stream, and bytes_out is the number of bytes returned in
deflated string chunks.
stream = zlib.inflate([windowBits])
Returns a "stream" function that decompresses (or inflates) all
strings passed in. Optionally specify a windowBits argument
that is passed to inflateInit2(), see zlib.h for details about
this argument. By default, gzip header detection is done, and
the max window size is used.
The "stream" function should be used as such:
string inflated, bool eof, number bytes_in, number bytes_out = stream(string input)
Takes input and inflates and returns a portion of it. If it
detects the end of a deflation stream, then total will be the
total number of bytes read from input and all future calls to
stream() with a non empty string will result in an error that
begins with IllegalState.
No flush options are provided since the maximal amount of
input is always processed.
eof will be true when the input string is determined to be at
the "end of the file".
The bytes_in is how many bytes of input have been passed to
stream, and bytes_out is the number of bytes returned in
inflated string chunks.
