Zlib compression library

Release date: 
Sunday, 8 April, 2012



Zlib compression library for EMX and kLIBC/GCC environments.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.

Installation with rpm

This program is installable using the rpm package manager. See below for the install string. Required prerequisites are automatically processed by the package manager and, if needed, downloaded and installed.

Thanks for suggestion, added!

The first contributor's name is wrong: it should be Christoph Brendes. And the homepage domain should be net, not org.
