This package provides bindings for the liblz4 compression library.
LZ4 is a very fast lossless compression algorithm, providing compression
speed at 400 MB/s per core, scalable with multi-cores CPU. It also
features an extremely fast decoder, with speed in multiple GB/s per core,
typically reaching RAM speed limits on multi-core systems.
