-- Maintainer:  Bryan O'Sullivan <>
-- Stability:   experimental
-- Portability: portable
-- This module provides fast, pure Haskell bindings to Google's
-- Snappy compression and decompression library:

-- These functions operate on strict bytestrings, and thus use as much
-- memory as both the entire compressed and uncompressed data.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
