A Common Lisp implementation of Google's Snappy data compression library. The original name for Google's Snappy compression library was Zippy.
The Snappy API
compress buffer index limit
Compresses the contents of BUFFER, a vector of (UNSIGNED-BYTE 8), from position INDEX to position LIMIT. Returns two values, a vector of type (UNSIGNED-BYTE 8) holding the compressed data and an integer indicating the number of compressed octets in the vector.
Returns the maximum size a vector of length UNCOMPRESSED-LENGTH may take up after it is compressed.
uncompress buffer index limit
Uncompresses BUFFER, a vector of (UNSIGNED-BYTE 8), from position INDEX to LIMIT. Returns the uncompressed data as a vector of (UNSIGNED-BYTE 8).
uncompressed-length buffer index limit
Returns the uncompressed length of the compressed data stored in BUFFER from position INDEX to LIMIT.
