ZLIB Coding Functions

This section describes Intel IPP data compression functions that implement compression methods and data formats defined by the following specifications: [RFC1950], [RFC1951], and [RFC1952]. These formats are also known as ZLIB, DEFLATE, and GZIP, respectively.
A basic algorithm for these data compression methods is based on the Lempel-Ziv (LZ77) [Ziv77] dictionary-based compression.
The structure of ZLIB data is schematically shown in Figure
"ZLIB Data Structure"
