zlib

(Z LIBrary) A set of compression/decompression routines written by Jean-loup Gailly and Mark Adler that is widely used in Linux and Unix operating systems. Zlib is open source and royalty-free software, and unlike the LZW compression algorithm, zlib does not increase the file size. For more information, visit www.gzip.org/zlib.
