 Abstract
 --------
 LZO is a portable lossless data compression library written in ANSI C.
 It offers pretty fast compression and very fast decompression.
 Decompression requires no memory.

 In addition there are slower compression levels achieving a quite
 competitive compression ratio while still decompressing at
 this very high speed.

 The LZO algorithms and implementations are copyrighted OpenSource
 distributed under the GNU General Public License.


 Introduction
 ------------
 LZO is a data compression library which is suitable for data
 de-/compression in real-time. This means it favours speed
 over compression ratio.

 The acronym LZO is standing for Lempel-Ziv-Oberhumer.

 LZO is written in ANSI C. Both the source code and the compressed
 data format are designed to be portable across platforms.

 LZO implements a number of algorithms with the following features:

 - Decompression is simple and *very* fast.
 - Requires no memory for decompression.
 - Compression is pretty fast.
 - Requires 64 KiB of memory for compression.
 - Allows you to dial up extra compression at a speed cost in the
   compressor. The speed of the decompressor is not reduced.
 - Includes compression levels for generating pre-compressed
   data which achieve a quite competitive compression ratio.
 - There is also a compression level which needs only 8 KiB for compression.
 - Algorithm is thread safe.
 - Algorithm is lossless.

 LZO supports overlapping compression and in-place decompression.
