+zlib 1.2.4 is a general purpose data compression library. All the code is
+thread safe. The data format used by the zlib library is described by RFCs
+(Request for Comments) 1950 to 1952 in the files
+ (zlib format), rfc1951.txt (deflate format)
+and rfc1952.txt (gzip format).
+All functions of the compression library are documented in the file zlib.h
+(volunteer to write man pages welcome, contact Two compiled
+examples are distributed in this package, example and minigzip. The example_d
+and minigzip_d flavors validate that the zlib1.dll file is working correctly.
+Questions about zlib should be sent to <>. The zlib home page
+is . Before reporting a problem, please check this site to
+verify that you have the latest version of zlib; otherwise get the latest
+version and check whether the problem still exists or not.
+PLEASE read DLL_FAQ.txt, and the the zlib FAQ
+before asking for help.
+The package contains the following files:
+ README-WIN32.txt This document
+ ChangeLog Changes since previous zlib packages
+ DLL_FAQ.txt Frequently asked questions about zlib1.dll
+ zlib.3.pdf Documentation of this library in Adobe Acrobat format
+ example.exe A statically-bound example (using zlib.lib, not the dll)
+ example.pdb Symbolic information for debugging example.exe
+ example_d.exe A zlib1.dll bound example (using zdll.lib)
+ example_d.pdb Symbolic information for debugging example_d.exe
+ minigzip.exe A statically-bound test program (using zlib.lib, not the dll)
+ minigzip.pdb Symbolic information for debugging minigzip.exe
+ minigzip_d.exe A zlib1.dll bound test program (using zdll.lib)
+ minigzip_d.pdb Symbolic information for debugging minigzip_d.exe
+ zlib.h Install these files into the compilers' INCLUDE path to
+ zconf.h compile programs which use zlib.lib or zdll.lib
+ zdll.lib Install these files into the compilers' LIB path if linking
+ zdll.exp a compiled program to the zlib1.dll binary
+ zlib.lib Install these files into the compilers' LIB path to link zlib
+ zlib.pdb into compiled programs, without zlib1.dll runtime dependency
+ (zlib.pdb provides debugging info to the compile time linker)
+ zlib1.dll Install this binary shared library into the system PATH, or
+ the program's runtime directory (where the .exe resides)
+ zlib1.pdb Install in the same directory as zlib1.dll, in order to debug
+ an application crash using WinDbg or similar tools.
+All .pdb files above are entirely optional, but are very useful to a developer
+attempting to diagnose program misbehavior or a crash. Many additional
+important files for developers can be found in the source package
+available from - review that package's README file for details.
+The deflate format used by zlib was defined by Phil Katz. The deflate and
+zlib specifications were written by L. Peter Deutsch. Thanks to all the
+people who reported problems and suggested various improvements in zlib; they
+are too numerous to cite here.
