NAME ^

Compress::LZMA::External - Compress and decompress using LZMA

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Compress::LZMA::External qw(compress decompress);
  my $compressed = compress($raw_data);
  my $decompressed = decompress($compressed_data);

  # you can also export these:
  my $compressed_fast = compress_fast($raw_data);
  my $compressed_best = compress_best($raw_data);

DESCRIPTION ^

The Lempel-Ziv-Markov chain-Algorithm (LZMA) is an data compression algorithm. It compresses very well (better than gzip and bzip2), compresses very slowly (much slower than bzip2) but decompresses relatively quickly.

This module is an interface to the lzma command-line program, available under Ubuntu with 'sudo apt-get install lzma'.
