module Codec.Compression.GZip (

  -- | This module provides pure functions for compressing and decompressing
  -- streams of data in the gzip format and represented by lazy 'ByteString's.
  -- This makes it easy to use either in memory or with disk or network IO.
  --
  -- For example a simple gzip compression program is just:
  --
  -- > import qualified Data.ByteString.Lazy as ByteString
  -- > import qualified Codec.Compression.GZip as GZip
  -- >
  -- > main = ByteString.interact GZip.compress
  --
  -- Or you could lazily read in and decompress a @.gz@ file using:
  --
  -- > content <- fmap GZip.decompress (readFile file)

-- | Decompress a stream of data in the gzip format.
--
-- There are a number of errors that can occur. In each case an exception will
-- be thrown. The possible error conditions are:
--
-- * if the stream does not start with a valid gzip header
--
-- * if the compressed stream is corrupted
--
-- * if the compressed stream ends permaturely
--
-- Note that the decompression is performed /lazily/. Errors in the data stream
-- may not be detected until the end of the stream is demanded (since it is
-- only at the end that the final checksum can be checked). If this is
-- important to you, you must make sure to consume the whole decompressed
-- stream before doing any IO action that depends on it.

decompress :: ByteString -> ByteString
decompress = decompressWith defaultDecompressParams


-- | Like 'decompress' but with the ability to specify various decompression
-- parameters. Typical usage:
--
-- > decompressWith defaultCompressParams { ... }
--
decompressWith :: DecompressParams -> ByteString -> ByteString
decompressWith = Internal.decompress gzipFormat


-- | Compress a stream of data into the gzip format.
--
-- This uses the default compression parameters. In partiular it uses the
-- default compression level which favours a higher compression ratio over
-- compression speed, though it does not use the maximum compression level.
--
-- Use 'compressWith' to adjust the compression level or other compression
-- parameters.
--
compress :: ByteString -> ByteString
compress = compressWith defaultCompressParams


-- | Like 'compress' but with the ability to specify various compression
-- parameters. Typical usage:
--
-- > compressWith defaultCompressParams { ... }
--
-- In particular you can set the compression level:
--
-- > compressWith defaultCompressParams { compressLevel = BestCompression }
--
compressWith :: CompressParams -> ByteString -> ByteString
compressWith = Internal.compress gzipFormat
