CL-LZMA

This is a CFFI wrapper around a LZMA foreign library, compiled straight out of the official LZMA SDK C binary.

There is no portable Lisp LZMA (de)compressor because:

  • the algorithm is complicated
  • the LZMA SDK is very obfuscated code
  • there is hardly any documentation for LZMA algorithm
  • there is no known workforce that can rewrite this in Lisp.

TODO

  • write a proper README, since the code seems to be working on my machine

Compiling

Right now, only a x64 Linux binary is compiled. To compile your own:

  1. Install the official LZMA SDK from Igor Pavlov.
  2. Modify /C/Util/Lzma/makefile.gcc, add -fPIC to CFLAGS.
  3. Issue make, which will build all object files.
  4. Build the shared library file. On Linux, this is $ gcc -shared -O2 -Wall -D_7ZIP_ST -fPIC -o lzma.so *.o - on other platforms, I bet you can figure it out.
  5. Put the file anywhere you want and load it with CFFI.
