A library for linking zlib-ng (
libz-ng) to Rust programs natively, rather
than in zlib-compat mode.
zlib-ng is a high-performance implementation of zlib. zlib-ng supports building
in two modes: zlib-compat mode, in whih it provides the same API as zlib and
generally works as a drop-in replacement, and native mode, in which it provides
its own API. The native API is almost identical to the zlib-compat API, except
that some types use more correct sizes (rather than the sizes required for zlib
compatibility), and the functions all have a
zng_ prefix. The latter allows
zlib and zlib-ng to coexist in the same program.
This crate provides bindings to the native zlib-ng API. However, for simplicity
of porting, this crate exports the same API as libz-sys (without the
prefixes), making it easier to write Rust software compatible with both
libz-sys and libz-ng-sys.
This crate provides bindings to the raw low-level C API. For a higher-level
safe API to work with DEFLATE, zlib, or gzip streams, see
