    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 https://tukaani.org/xz/ for xz/lzma, or https://zlib.net/ for lzw.
