XZ Embedded

XZ Embedded is a relatively small decompressor for the .xz file format. It was developed with the Linux kernel in mind, but it is easily usable in other projects too.



XZ Embedded has been put into the public domain, thus you can do whatever you want with it. All the files in XZ Embedded have been written by Lasse Collin, but some files are heavily based on public domain code written by Igor Pavlov.


The latest code in the Git repository of XZ Embedded should be the best available version. There is no API nor ABI stability guarantee between versions of XZ Embedded.
