NAME

PerlIO::via::xz - PerlIO layer for XZ (de)compression

SYNOPSIS

    use PerlIO::via::XZ;

    # Read a xz compressed file from disk.
    open my $fh, "<:via(xz)", "compressed_file";
    my $uncompressed_data = <$fh>;

    # Compress data on-the-fly to a xz compressed file on disk.
    open my $fh, ">:via(xz)", "compressed_file";
    print { $fh } $uncompressed_data;

DESCRIPTION

This module implements a PerlIO layer which will let you handle xz compressed files transparently.

BUGS

Using binmode on an opened file for compression will pop (remove) the layer.
