  Description     : LZ4 compression for Java

LZ4 compression for Java, based on Yann Collet's work available at

This library provides access to two compression methods that both generate
a valid LZ4 stream:

   - fast scan (LZ4):
      - low memory footprint (~ 16 KB),
      - very fast (fast scan with skipping heuristics in case the input
      looks incompressible),
      - reasonable compression ratio (depending on the redundancy of the
   - high compression (LZ4 HC):
      - medium memory footprint (~ 256 KB),
      - rather slow (~ 10 times slower than LZ4),
      - good compression ratio (depending on the size and the redundancy of
      the input).

The streams produced by those 2 compression algorithms use the same
compression format, are very fast to decompress and can be decompressed by
the same decompressor instance.
This is used for kotlin.
I plan on maintaining this along with debian-java team.
