This package implements low-level support for reading, writing, and loading
compressed files. It hooks into the low-level file I/O functions (including
insert-file-contents) so that they
automatically compress or uncompress a file if the file appears to need it
(based on the extension of the file name). Packages like Rmail, VM, GNUS,
and Info should be able to work with compressed files without modification.
The operation of this package should be transparent to the user (except for messages appearing when a file is being compressed or uncompressed).
jka-compr-compression-info-list can be used to customize
jka-compr to work with other compression programs. The default value
of this variable allows
jka-compr to work with Unix compress and gzip.
To activate this package, add the following to your initialization file:
(toggle-auto-compression 1 t) ; enable compression/decompression
To configure this package, type:
M-x customize-group RET jka-compr RET
