NAME
       Compress::Raw::Bzip2 - Low-Level Interface to bzip2 compression library

SYNOPSIS
	   use Compress::Raw::Bzip2 ;

	   my ($bz, $status) = new Compress::Raw::Bzip2 [OPTS]
	       or die "Cannot create bzip2 object: $bzerno\n";

	   $status = $bz->bzdeflate($input, $output);
	   $status = $bz->bzflush($output);
	   $status = $bz->bzclose($output);

	   my ($bz, $status) = new Compress::Raw::Bunzip2 [OPTS]
	       or die "Cannot create bunzip2 object: $bzerno\n";

	   $status = $bz->bzinflate($input, $output);

	   my $version = Compress::Raw::Bzip2::bzlibversion();

DESCRIPTION
       "Compress::Raw::Bzip2" provides an interface to the in-memory compression/uncompression
       functions from the bzip2 compression library.

       Although the primary purpose for the existence of "Compress::Raw::Bzip2" is for use by the
       "IO::Compress::Bzip2" and "IO::Compress::Bunzip2" modules, it can be used on its own for
       simple compression/uncompression tasks.

Compression
   ($z, $status) = new Compress::Raw::Bzip2 $appendOutput, $blockSize100k, $workfactor;
       Creates a new compression object.

       If successful, it will return the initialised compression object, $z and a $status of
       "BZ_OK" in a list context. In scalar context it returns the deflation object, $z, only.

       If not successful, the returned compression object, $z, will be undef and $status will
       hold the a bzip2 error code.

       Below is a list of the valid options:

       $appendOutput
	    Controls whether the compressed data is appended to the output buffer in the
	    "bzdeflate", "bzflush" and "bzclose" methods.

	    Defaults to 1.

       $blockSize100k
	    To quote the bzip2 documentation

		blockSize100k specifies the block size to be used for compression. It
		should be a value between 1 and 9 inclusive, and the actual block size
		used is 100000 x this figure. 9 gives the best compression but takes
		most memory.

	    Defaults to 1.

       $workfactor
	    To quote the bzip2 documentation

		This parameter controls how the compression phase behaves when
		presented with worst case, highly repetitive, input data. If
		compression runs into difficulties caused by repetitive data, the
		library switches from the standard sorting algorithm to a fallback
		algorithm. The fallback is slower than the standard algorithm by
		perhaps a factor of three, but always behaves reasonably, no matter how
		bad the input.

		Lower values of workFactor reduce the amount of effort the standard
		algorithm will expend before resorting to the fallback. You should set
		this parameter carefully; too low, and many inputs will be handled by
		the fallback algorithm and so compress rather slowly, too high, and
		your average-to-worst case compression times can become very large. The
		default value of 30 gives reasonable behaviour over a wide range of
		circumstances.

		Allowable values range from 0 to 250 inclusive. 0 is a special case,
		equivalent to using the default value of 30.

	    Defaults to 0.

   $status = $bz->bzdeflate($input, $output);
       Reads the contents of $input, compresses it and writes the compressed data to $output.

       Returns "BZ_RUN_OK" on success and a "bzip2" error code on failure.

       If "appendOutput" is enabled in the constructor for the bzip2 object, the compressed data
       will be appended to $output. If not enabled, $output will be truncated before the
       compressed data is written to it.

   $status = $bz->bzflush($output);
       Flushes any pending compressed data to $output.

       Returns "BZ_RUN_OK" on success and a "bzip2" error code on failure.

   $status = $bz->bzclose($output);
       Terminates the compressed data stream and flushes any pending compressed data to $output.

       Returns "BZ_STREAM_END" on success and a "bzip2" error code on failure.

   Example
Uncompression
   ($z, $status) = new Compress::Raw::Bunzip2 $appendOutput, $consumeInput, $small, $verbosity,
       $limitOutput;
       If successful, it will return the initialised uncompression object, $z and a $status of
       "BZ_OK" in a list context. In scalar context it returns the deflation object, $z, only.

       If not successful, the returned uncompression object, $z, will be undef and $status will
       hold the a bzip2 error code.

       Below is a list of the valid options:

       $appendOutput
	    Controls whether the compressed data is appended to the output buffer in the
	    "bzinflate", "bzflush" and "bzclose" methods.

	    Defaults to 1.

       $consumeInput
       $small
	    To quote the bzip2 documentation

		If small is nonzero, the library will use an alternative decompression
		algorithm which uses less memory but at the cost of decompressing more
		slowly (roughly speaking, half the speed, but the maximum memory
		requirement drops to around 2300k).

	    Defaults to 0.

       $limitOutput
	    The "LimitOutput" option changes the behavior of the "$i->bzinflate" method so that
	    the amount of memory used by the output buffer can be limited.

	    When "LimitOutput" is used the size of the output buffer used will either be the 16k
	    or the amount of memory already allocated to $output, whichever is larger. Predicting
	    the output size available is tricky, so don't rely on getting an exact output buffer
	    size.

	    When "LimitOutout" is not specified "$i->bzinflate" will use as much memory as it
	    takes to write all the uncompressed data it creates by uncompressing the input
	    buffer.

	    If "LimitOutput" is enabled, the "ConsumeInput" option will also be enabled.

	    This option defaults to false.

       $verbosity
	    This parameter is ignored.

	    Defaults to 0.

   $status = $z->bzinflate($input, $output);
       Uncompresses $input and writes the uncompressed data to $output.

       Returns "BZ_OK" if the uncompression was successful, but the end of the compressed data
       stream has not been reached. Returns "BZ_STREAM_END" on successful uncompression and the
       end of the compression stream has been reached.

       If "consumeInput" is enabled in the constructor for the bunzip2 object, $input will have
       all compressed data removed from it after uncompression. On "BZ_OK" return this will mean
       that $input will be an empty string; when "BZ_STREAM_END" $input will either be an empty
       string or will contain whatever data immediately followed the compressed data stream.

       If "appendOutput" is enabled in the constructor for the bunzip2 object, the uncompressed
       data will be appended to $output. If not enabled, $output will be truncated before the
       uncompressed data is written to it.
