Compress::Deflate7 - Perl interface to 7-Zip's deflate compressor
use Compress::Deflate7 qw(deflate7 zlib7); my $rfc1951 = deflate7("..."); my $rfc1950 = zlib7("..."); my $level9 = zlib7( "...", Algorithm => 1, Pass => 10, FastBytes => 128, Cycles => 0, );
This modules exposes 7-Zip's deflate compressor. The implementation favours compression ratio over speed under high settings and is often able to compress better than the widely used
zlib7 on request, none by default.
Both functions allow several options to succeed the data parameter. The
Algorithm option can be set to
Pass option can be set to
FastBytes can be set to
Cycles can be set to any positive integer. The
-mx=9 mode in
7za sets Algorithm to 1, Pass to 10, FastBytes to 128, and Cycles to 0. The default is 0, 1, 32, 0.
