The modules described in this chapter support data compression with the zlib, gzip, and bzip2 algorithms, and the creation of ZIP- and tar-format archives.
|zlib||Low-level interface to compression and decompression routines compatible with gzip.|
|gzip||Interfaces for gzip compression and decompression using file objects.|
|bz2||Interface to compression and decompression routines compatible with bzip2.|
|zipfile||Read and write ZIP-format archive files.|
|tarfile||Read and write tar-format archive files.|
