Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the decompress function to regain the original data that was compressed.

Parameters:

The data is a string of compressed binary data.

Value:

The decompress function returns a string.

Comments:

The decompress function is the inverse of the compress function.

The uncompressed result is typically about half again the size of the compressed data, although different results may be obtained depending on the amount of data.

For technical information about the format used by the compress and decompress functions, see RFC 1952 at <http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1952.txt>. The decompress function uses the zlib compression library.
