This specification defines a 'universal decompressor' capable of interoperating with a wide range of compression algorithms. Using the basic techniques of Huffman compression and LZ77-style string substitution, the decompressor can be configured to understand the output of many well-known compressors including [DEFLATE] and [LZW].
