General usage information

lz4 is a high-speed lossless compression algorithm and utility library, and file format based

This module will add the lz4, lz4c, lz4cat, and unlz4 commands to your path.

In case you need to link against this library in your code, the following environmental variables have been defined:

  • \$LZ4_ROOT has been set to the root of the lz4 installation
  • \$LZ4_LIBDIR points to the directory containing the libraries
  • \$LZ4_INCDIR points to the directory containing the header files

You will probably wish to use these by adding the following flags to your compilation command (e.g. to CFLAGS in your Makefile):

  • -I\$LZ4_INCDIR
and the following flags to your link command (e.g. LDFLAGS in your Makefile):
  • -L\$LZ4_LIBDIR -Wl,-rpath,\$LZ4_LIBDIR
