12 zlib 1.2.8 is a general purpose data compression library. All the code is
13 thread safe. The data format used by the zlib library is described by RFCs
14 (Request for Comments) 1950 to 1952 in the files
15 (zlib format), rfc1951 (deflate format) and
16 rfc1952 (gzip format).
18 All functions of the compression library are documented in the file zlib.h
19 (volunteer to write man pages welcome, contact A usage example
20 of the library is given in the file test/example.c which also tests that
21 the library is working correctly. Another example is given in the file
22 test/minigzip.c. The compression library itself is composed of all source
23 files in the root directory.
25 To compile all files and run the test program, follow the instructions given at
26 the top of In short "./configure; make test", and if that goes
27 well, "make install" should work for most flavors of Unix. For Windows, use
28 one of the special makefiles in win32/ or contrib/vstudio/ . For VMS, use
31 Questions about zlib should be sent to <>, or to Gilles Vollant
32 <> for the Windows DLL version. The zlib home page is
33 . Before reporting a problem, please check this site to
34 verify that you have the latest version of zlib; otherwise get the latest
35 version and check whether the problem still exists or not.
37 PLEASE read the zlib FAQ before asking for help.
39 Mark Nelson <> wrote an article about zlib for the Jan. 1997
40 issue of Dr. Dobb's Journal; a copy of the article is available at
41 .
43 The changes made in version 1.2.8 are documented in the file ChangeLog.
45 Unsupported third party contributions are provided in directory contrib/ .
47 zlib is available in Java using the package, documented at
48 .
50 A Perl interface to zlib written by Paul Marquess <> is available
51 at CPAN (Comprehensive Perl Archive Network) sites, including
52 .
54 A Python interface to zlib written by A.M. Kuchling <> is
55 available in Python 1.5 and later versions, see
56 .
58 zlib is built into tcl: .
60 An experimental package to read and write files in .zip format, written on top
61 of zlib by Gilles Vollant <>, is available in the
62 contrib/minizip directory of zlib.
65 Notes for some targets:
67 - For Windows DLL versions, please see win32/DLL_FAQ.txt
69 - For 64-bit Irix, deflate.c must be compiled without any optimization. With
70 -O, one libpng test fails. The test works in 32 bit mode (with the -n32
71 compiler flag). The compiler bug has been reported to SGI.
73 - zlib doesn't work with gcc 2.6.3 on a DEC 3000/300LX under OSF/1 2.1 it works
74 when compiled with cc.
76 - On Digital Unix 4.0D (formely OSF/1) on AlphaServer, the cc option -std1 is
77 necessary to get gzprintf working correctly. This is done by configure.
79 - zlib doesn't work on HP-UX 9.05 with some versions of /bin/cc. It works with
80 other compilers. Use "make test" to check your compiler.
82 - gzdopen is not supported on RISCOS or BEOS.
84 - For PalmOs, see

89 The deflate format used by zlib was defined by Phil Katz. The deflate and
90 zlib specifications were written by L. Peter Deutsch. Thanks to all the
91 people who reported problems and suggested various improvements in zlib; they
