This is an egg for CHICKEN 4, the unsupported old release. You're almost certainly looking for the CHICKEN 5 version of this egg, if it exists.
If it does not exist, there may be equivalent functionality provided by another egg; have a look at the egg index. Otherwise, please consider porting this egg to the current version of CHICKEN.
A small FFI wrapper around the LZ4 compression library. This egg includes its own version of the lz4 library.
Yann Collet, wrapped up for CHICKEN by Christian Kellermann
- compress s8vectorprocedure
Calls the LZ4_compress C function. Returns a S8-Vector containing the compressed data in LZ4 Format.
- compress-hc s8vectorprocedure
Calls the LZ4_compressHC C function. Returns a S8-Vector containing the compressed data in LZ4 Format. This procedure uses the high compression variant of LZ4.
- uncompress s8vectorprocedure
Calls the LZ4_uncompress C function. Returns a S8-Vector containing the uncompressed data.
All of the above procedures may raise a composite condition of the form (exn ffi lz4) indicating the source and reason of the error in the exn properties arguments, location and message.
