ZLIB-FLATE(1)                    User Commands                   ZLIB-FLATE(1)



NAME
       zlib-flate - raw zlib compression program

SYNOPSIS
       zlib-flate -compress | -uncompress

DESCRIPTION
       The zlib-flate program is part of the qpdf package.

       The zlib-flate program reads from standard input and writes to standard
       output either compressing or uncompressing its  input  using  raw  zlib
       compression.   It can be used to uncompress or compress raw PDF streams
       or other data that is compressed with raw zlib compression.  This  pro-
       gram is provided primarily as a debugging tool, though it could be used
       for other purposes, such as being called from  a  script  that  creates
       simple PDF files.

       This  program should not be used as a general purpose compression tool.
       Use something like gzip(1) instead.

       For details about qpdf, please see the qpdf manual, which can be  found
       in  /usr/share/doc/qpdf/qpdf-manual.html  or  /usr/share/doc/qpdf/qpdf-
