Python-LZO -- Python bindings for LZO
What is LZO ?
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.
What is Python ?
Python is an interpreted object-oriented programming language, and is often compared to Tcl, Perl, Java or Scheme. To find out more, point your browser to http://www.python.org/ .
What is Python-LZO ?
Python-LZO provides Python bindings for LZO, i.e. you can access the LZO library from your Python scripts thereby compressing ordinary Python strings.
Where's the documentation ?
Additionally you should read the docs and study the example programs that ship with the LZO library. Really.
