Expand description

A pure rust replacement for the miniz DEFLATE/zlib encoder/decoder. The plan for this crate is to be used as a back-end for the flate2 crate and eventually remove the need to depend on a C library.


Simple compression/decompression:

use miniz_oxide::inflate::decompress_to_vec;
use miniz_oxide::deflate::compress_to_vec;

fn roundtrip(data: &[u8]) {
    let compressed = compress_to_vec(data, 6);
    let decompressed = decompress_to_vec(compressed.as_slice()).expect("Failed to decompress!");


This module contains functionality for compression.

This module contains functionality for decompression.


A structure containg the result of a call to the inflate or deflate streaming functions.


How compressed data is wrapped.

A list of miniz failed status codes.

A list of flush types.
