LZ4 decompressor code by Docent
31 December 2016, 8:00 pm

Docent wrote a decompressor the the LZ4 compression algorithm, which can be used on any Zilog Z80 CPU. The focus of the LZ4 compression algorithm is a fast decompression speed and a small decompression routine. The size of Docents version of the decompression routine is 219 bytes (raw decompression routine under 110 bytes) and it supports the legacy and the newest LZ4 format (except for framing).

You can download the latest version of the decompression code here or at the end of this news.

Features

  • decompresses files packed by lz4 command line packer and raw lz4 compressed data
  • supports legacy and the newest lz4 file format (except framing)
  • fully relocatable code
  • total size of 219 bytes size with raw decompression routine below 110 bytes
  • cpc firmware friendly (no alternate register set used)
  • ROM friendly – no self modifying code or additional memory required
  • simple interface – only start of file in memory and target memory destination required

FYI: The latest version already supports framing and files, packed with the latest LZ4 format version 1.5.1.
It takes 250 bytes of code, with raw data decompression routine taking only 94 bytes.

broken link  >:(
use RASM, the best assembler ever made :p

I will survive

Thanks for the notification -I changed the dir layout but forgot to add a symlink to keep links to previous location working. It should work now.
