Zstandard, a fast real-time compression algorithm (source files)
Zstd, short for Zstandard, is a fast lossless compression algorithm, targeting real-time compression scenarios at zlib-level and better compression ratios. The zstd compression library provides in-memory compression and decompression functions. It offers a very wide range of compression / speed trade-off, while being backed by a very fast decoder. It also offers a special mode for small data, called dictionary compression, and can create dictionaries from any sample set.
