= Zliby: Pure Ruby Zlib === Version Information Release:: 0.0.5 Description:: A Ruby 1.8.6 Zlib compatible module. Reference:: Zlib[http://www.zlib.net] 1.2.3 == Introduction Zliby is an implmention of the Zlib[http://www.zlib.net] library written in pure Ruby. It is meant to be API compatible with the existing Ruby Zlib extension library. The purpose of this library was two-fold: 1. To see if it could be done 2. To provide IronRuby[http://www.ironruby.net] with a compatible Zlib implementation While IronRuby[http://www.ironruby.net] was the inspirition for this project, the fact that it's written in pure Ruby means any Ruby implementation should benefit. === Acknowledgements The deflate implmentation is essentially a port of puff.c from the Zlib[http://www.zlib.net] implementation by Jean-loup Gailly and Mark Adler. All due praise should be directed their way. ==== Author Author:: Michael Letterle [ theprokrammer [ a t ] prokrams.com ] Copyright:: 2008 by Michael Letterle == License :include: LICENSE
