# Welcome to snappy snappy is a fast Haskell library for working with data compressed using Google's Snappy format. It is implemented as a binding to the [Snappy library](http://code.google.com/p/snappy/). It implements zero-copy compression and decompression of both strict and lazy [bytestring](http://hackage.haskell.org/package/bytestring)s, the standard Haskell types for managing binary data efficiently. # Join in! We are happy to receive bug reports, fixes, documentation enhancements, and other improvements. Please report bugs via the [github issue tracker](http://github.com/bos/snappy/issues). Master [git repository](http://github.com/bos/snappy): * `git clone git://github.com/bos/snappy.git` There's also a [Mercurial mirror](http://bitbucket.org/bos/snappy): * `hg clone http://bitbucket.org/bos/snappy` (You can create and contribute changes using either git or Mercurial.)
