LZFSE

This is a reference C implementation of the LZFSE compressor introduced in the Compression library with OS X 10.11 and iOS 9.

LZFSE is a Lempel-Ziv style data compression algorithm using Finite State Entropy coding. It targets similar compression rates at higher compression and decompression speed compared to deflate using zlib.

Building on OS X

$ xcodebuild install DSTROOT=/tmp/lzfse.dst

Produces the following files in /tmp/lzfse.dst:

usr/local/bin/lzfse                   command line tool
usr/local/include/lzfse.h             LZFSE library header
usr/local/lib/liblzfse.a              LZFSE library

Building on Linux

Tested on Ubuntu 15.10 with gcc 5.2.1 and clang 3.6.2. Should work on any recent distribution.

$ make install INSTALL_PREFIX=/tmp/lzfse.dst/usr/local

Produces the following files in /tmp/lzfse.dst:

usr/local/bin/lzfse                   command line tool
usr/local/include/lzfse.h             LZFSE library header
usr/local/lib/liblzfse.a              LZFSE library

Building with cmake

$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake ..
$ make install

Installs the header, library, and command line tool in /usr/local.
