============================================================================
LZO -- a real-time data compression library
============================================================================

LZO is free of any known bugs.

Nevertheless LZO has been reported to break the optimizer of some
compilers including gcc 2.7.2 (AIX, IRIX) and Watcom C 9.5.

So if `lzotest' reports data decompression errors you should recompile
everything without optimizations and see if that fixes the problem.
I'd like to hear about optimizer problems and possible workarounds.


Known compiler problems:
------------------------
  some versions of gcc    use `-O2 -fno-strength-reduce'
  some versions of gcc    use `-O2 -fno-schedule-insns -fno-schedule-insns2'
  Watcom C 9.5            compile with `-oneax' instead of `-oneatx'
