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/local/share/doc/qpdf/qpdf-manual.html      or     /usr/lo-
