lzfse_rust

Rust LZFSE implementation.

Documentation

https://docs.rs/lzfse_rust

Install

Simply configure your Cargo.toml:

[dependencies]
lzfse_rust = "0.1"

Overview

This crate provides two LZFSE engines: one operating over user supplied memory buffers, and one operating over internal ring buffers.

The memory buffered engine works directly with input and output buffers that we supply. It is exposed via LzfseEncoder and LzfseDecoder objects. We would consider this engine when operating on &[u8] and Vec<u8> objects.

The ring buffered engine works by streaming data in and out of it's ring buffers. It is exposed via LzfseRingEncoder and LzfseRingDecoder objects. We would consider this engine when operating on IO streams, or when we want to expose a Read or Write interface.

Check the documentation for additional information and examples.

Examples

This program compresses data from stdin into stdout. This example can be found in examples/compress_ring.rs

use lzfse_rust::LzfseRingEncoder;
use std::io;

fn main() -> io::Result<()> {
    let mut rdr = io::stdin();
    let mut wtr = io::stdout();
    let mut encoder = LzfseRingEncoder::default();
    encoder.encode(&mut rdr, &mut wtr)?;
    Ok(())
}

This program decompresses data from stdin into stdout. This example can be found in examples/decompress_ring.rs

use lzfse_rust::LzfseRingDecoder;
use std::io;

fn main() -> io::Result<()> {
    let mut rdr = io::stdin();
    let mut wtr = io::stdout();
    let mut decoder = LzfseRingDecoder::default();
    decoder.decode(&mut rdr, &mut wtr)?;
    Ok(())
}

Command line tool: lzfoo

A fast, memory efficient and stream capable lzfse command line tool clone. Powered by lzfse_rust.

Install.

$ cargo install lzfoo

Compress a.txt to a.txt.lzfse:

$ lzfoo -encode -i a.txt -o a.txt.lzfse

Compress with stdin/ stdout:

$ lzfoo -encode -i < a.txt > a.txt.lzfse
$ echo "semper fidelis" | lzfoo -encode > a.txt.lzfse

Decompress a.txt.lzfse to a.txt:

$ lzfoo -decode -i a.txt.lzfse -o a.txt

Decompress with stdin/ stdout:

$ lzfoo -decode -i < a.txt.lzfse > a.txt

Check the lzfoo crate for details.

Testing

This crate comes with a comprehensive test suite that is divided into unit tests and integration tests. The unit tests check that the library's internal components are working, whilst the integration tests check that library as a whole is working. Extended tests are available but may take hours to complete.

Unit tests:

$ cargo test

Unit tests, extended:

$ cargo test -- --ignored

Integration tests:

$ cargo test --manifest-path test/Cargo.toml

Integration tests, extended:

$ cargo test --manifest-path test/Cargo.toml -- --ignored

Additional integration tests are available. Notably, validation tests with the reference LZFSE implementation. These are described in test, along with instructions on how to build and run them.

Performance

As a library and with the stated test machine, lzfse_rust outperforms lzfse_ref. However results will vary with different machines.

The benchmarks are powered with Criterion and formatted with critcmp. The machine is an 8GB Intel i5-2500K running Ubuntu 18.04 (64 bit). The dataset is taken from Snappy. The benchmark source is here, along with instructions on how to build and run the benchmarks.
