Description : Extremely Fast Compression algorithm library
LZ4 is a very fast lossless compression algorithm.
This uses Dictionary compression, and only supports compression and
decompression unit blocks.
This looks very promising, but also immature. The upstream makefile
doesn't build a shared library, not even a static library, but only an
executable ("lz4demo"). Are there any plans to change that?
