Python module for decoding compressed lzw files
Python module for decoding lzw files. This is based directly off Mark Adler's C library for decoding lzw files. Some slight modifications were done for my own use case.
from lzwfile import decompress # File name can be used if located within same directory, # if not please use the absolute path. file_name = 'compressed_file.Z' decompressed_data = decompress(file_name)
I'm planning on adding encoding functionality to this package as well to further my understanding of the lzw compression algorithm.
