   12 DESCRIPTION
   13 -----------
   14 
   15 This distribution provides a Perl interface to allow reading and writing of
   16 compressed data created with the zlib and bzip2.
   17 
   18 IO-Compress supports reading and writing of the following compressed data formats
   19   * bzip2
   20   * RFC 1950
   21   * RFC 1951
   22   * RFC 1952 (i.e. gzip)
   23   * zip
   24 
   25 There are a number of companion modules for IO-Compress that extend
   26 the suite of compression formats available.
   27 
   28  * IO-Compress-Lzma
   29    Adds support for lzma, xz and lzip.
   30  * IO-Compress-Lzf
   31    Adds support for lzf.
   32  * IO-Compress-Lzop
   33    Adds support for lzop.
   34 
   35 Note that the following modules used to be distributed separately, but are now
   36 included with the IO-Compress distribution.
   37 
   38     Compress-Zlib
   39     IO-Compress-Zlib
   40     IO-Compress-Bzip2
   41     IO-Compress-Base
   42 
   43 PREREQUISITES
   44 -------------

   57 using this sequence of commands:
   58 
   59     perl Makefile.PL
   60     make
   61     make test
   62

   80 FEEDBACK
   81 --------
   82 
   83 How to report a problem with IO-Compress.
   84 
   85 To help me help you, I need all of the following information:
   86 
   87  1. The Versions of everything relevant.
   88     This includes:
   89 
   90      a. The *complete* output from running this
   91 
   92             perl -V
   93 
   94         Do not edit the output in any way.
   95         Note, I want you to run "perl -V" and NOT "perl -v".
   96 
   97         If your perl does not understand the "-V" option it is too
   98         old. This module needs Perl version 5.004 or better.
   99 
  100      b. The version of IO-Compress you have.
  101         If you have successfully installed IO-Compress, this one-liner
  102         will tell you:
  103 
  104            perl -MIO::Compress::Gzip -e 'print qq[ver $IO::Compress::Gzip::VERSION\n]'
  105 
  106         If you are  running windows use this
  107 
  108            perl -MIO::Compress::Gzip -e "print qq[ver $IO::Compress::Gzip::VERSION\n]"
  109 
  110         If you haven't installed IO-Compress then search IO::Compress::Gzip.pm
  111         for a line like this:
  112 
  113           $VERSION = "2.093" ;
  114 
  115  2. If you are having problems building IO-Compress, send me a
  116     complete log of what happened. Start by unpacking the IO-Compress
  117     module into a fresh directory and keep a log of all the steps
  118 
  119         [edit config.in, if necessary]
  120         perl Makefile.PL
  121         make
  122         make test TEST_VERBOSE=1
