Overview

Package lzw implements the Lempel-Ziv-Welch compressed data format, described in T. A. Welch, “A Technique for High-Performance Data Compression”, Computer, 17(6) (June 1984), pp 8-19.

In particular, it implements LZW as used by the GIF and PDF file formats, which means variable-width codes up to 12 bits and the first two non-literal codes are a clear code and an EOF code.

The TIFF file format uses a similar but incompatible version of the LZW algorithm. See the golang.org/x/image/tiff/lzw package for an implementation.

Functions

func NewReader

func NewReader(r io.Reader, order Order, litWidth int) io.ReadCloser

NewReader creates a new io.ReadCloser. Reads from the returned io.ReadCloser read and decompress data from r. If r does not also implement io.ByteReader, the decompressor may read more data than necessary from r. It is the caller's responsibility to call Close on the ReadCloser when finished reading. The number of bits to use for literal codes, litWidth, must be in the range [2,8] and is typically 8. It must equal the litWidth used during compression.

It is guaranteed that the underlying type of the returned io.ReadCloser is a *Reader.

func NewWriter

func NewWriter(w io.Writer, order Order, litWidth int) io.WriteCloser

NewWriter creates a new io.WriteCloser. Writes to the returned io.WriteCloser are compressed and written to w. It is the caller's responsibility to call Close on the WriteCloser when finished writing. The number of bits to use for literal codes, litWidth, must be in the range [2,8] and is typically 8. Input bytes must be less than 1<<litWidth.

It is guaranteed that the underlying type of the returned io.WriteCloser is a *Writer.

Types

type Order

type Order int

Order specifies the bit ordering in an LZW data stream.

const (
	// LSB means Least Significant Bits first, as used in the GIF file format.
	LSB Order = iota
	// MSB means Most Significant Bits first, as used in the TIFF and PDF
	// file formats.
	MSB
)

type Reader added in go1.17

type Reader struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

Reader is an io.Reader which can be used to read compressed data in the LZW format.

func (*Reader) Close added in go1.17

func (r *Reader) Close() error

Close closes the Reader and returns an error for any future read operation. It does not close the underlying io.Reader.

func (*Reader) Read added in go1.17

func (r *Reader) Read(b []byte) (int, error)

Read implements io.Reader, reading uncompressed bytes from its underlying Reader.

func (*Reader) Reset added in go1.17

func (r *Reader) Reset(src io.Reader, order Order, litWidth int)

Reset clears the Reader's state and allows it to be reused again as a new Reader.

type Writer added in go1.17

type Writer struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

Writer is an LZW compressor. It writes the compressed form of the data to an underlying writer (see NewWriter).

func (*Writer) Close added in go1.17

func (w *Writer) Close() error

Close closes the Writer, flushing any pending output. It does not close w's underlying writer.

func (*Writer) Reset added in go1.17

func (w *Writer) Reset(dst io.Writer, order Order, litWidth int)

Reset clears the Writer's state and allows it to be reused again as a new Writer.

func (*Writer) Write added in go1.17

func (w *Writer) Write(p []byte) (n int, err error)

Write writes a compressed representation of p to w's underlying writer.
