The Caml Hump: CamlBZ2


CamlBZ2 provides OCaml bindings for libbzip2, a popular compression library which typically compresses better (i.e., smaller resulting files) than gzip. Using CamlBZ2 you can read and write compressed "files", where files can be anything offering an in_channel/out_channel abstraction (files, sockets, ...). Also, with CamlBZ2 you can compress and decompress strings in memory using the bzip2 compression algorithm.
