Perl interface to Google Snappy (de)compressor
CompressSnappy provides an interface to Google’s Snappy decompressor.
Snappy does not aim for maximum compression, or compatibility with any other compression library; instead, it aims for very high speeds and reasonable compression. For instance, compared to the fastest mode of zlib, Snappy is an order of magnitude faster for most inputs, but the resulting compressed files are anywhere from 20 to 100 bigger.
