    NAME

    node-zlib - Simple, synchronous deflate/inflate for node.js buffers.

    USAGE

    Install with npm install zlib.

    var Buffer = require('buffer').Buffer;
    var zlib = require('zlib');
    
    var input = new Buffer('lorem ipsum dolor sit amet');
    var compressed = zlib.deflate(input);
    var output = zlib.inflate(compressed);
    

    Note that node-zlib is only intended for small (< 128 KB) data that you already have buffered. It is not meant for input/output streams.

    BUILDING

    Make sure you have zlib installed. Mac OS X ships with it by default.

    To obtain and build the bindings:

    git clone git://github.com/kkaefer/node-zlib.git
    cd node-zlib
    ./configure
    make
    

    You can also use npm to download and install them:

    npm install zlib
    

    TESTS

    expresso is required to run unit tests.

    npm install expresso
    make test
