  • JetBrains - Developer Ecosystem Survey 2022
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • ZLib

    A massively spiffy yet delicately unobtrusive compression library.

    These libraries are themselves wrappers of low-level libraries, primarily for performance considerations (as they are almost always coded in C). If you really want to dig into the structure of those formats, you should rather investigate the possibilities of these low-level libraries. Like for xz/lzma, or for lzw.

  • LZMA

    (Unofficial) Git mirror of LZMA SDK releases

    And that links to , in the download there see the DOC folder for documentation? I really can't figure out how that somehow 'sends you back to python's lzma'...
