An on-fly auto-uncompressing C library
Zlibc is a preloadable shared library that allows executables to
uncompress the data files that they need on the fly. No kernel patch,
no recompilation of these executables and no recompilation of the
libraries is needed.
Please read the zlibc documentation (info, html) to learn how to use zlibc.
Basically, all you need to do is:
setenv LD_PRELOAD uncompress.so
FWIW, this source uses arch-independent asm to do the magic. The source should
compile on any Linux box (of any supported architecture) with a new enough

There are a few novelties in this version of zlibc from upstream:
* The shared library has been renamed /lib/uncompress.so instead of /lib/uncompress.o
* There are no more sln, srm or smv tools.

The zlibc package allows transparent on the fly uncompression
of gzipped files. Your programs will be able to access any
compressed file, just as if they were uncompressed. Zlibc
will transparently uncompresses the data from these files as
soon as they are read, just as a compress
