This package is for version 3.18 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see zlibbioc.

An R packaged zlib-1.2.5

Bioconductor version: 3.18

This package uses the source code of zlib-1.2.5 to create libraries for systems that do not have these available via other means (most Linux and Mac users should have system-level access to zlib, and no direct need for this package). See the vignette for instructions on use.
