  Description     : OCaml bindings for the bzip2 compression library

   CamlBZ2 provides OCaml bindings for libbz2 (AKA bzip2), a popular
   compression library which typically compresses better (i.e., smaller
   resulting files) than gzip.

   Using CamlBZ2 you can read and write compressed "files", where files
   can be anything offering an in_channel/out_channel abstraction
   (files, sockets, ...).

   Also, with CamlBZ2 you can compress and decompress strings in memory
   using the bzip2 compression algorithm.
