 /*******************************************************************************
   Introduction
 
   zstd, short for Zstandard, is a fast lossless compression algorithm, targeting
   real-time compression scenarios at zlib-level and better compression ratios.
   The zstd compression library provides in-memory compression and decompression
   functions.
 
   The library supports regular compression levels from 1 up to ZSTD_maxCLevel(),
   which is currently 22. Levels >= 20, labeled `--ultra`, should be used with
   caution, as they require more memory. The library also offers negative
   compression levels, which extend the range of speed vs. ratio preferences.
   The lower the level, the faster the speed (at the cost of compression).
 
   Compression can be done in:
     - a single step (described as Simple API)
     - a single step, reusing a context (described as Explicit context)
     - unbounded multiple steps (described as Streaming compression)
 
   The compression ratio achievable on small data can be highly improved using
   a dictionary. Dictionary compression can be performed in:
     - a single step (described as Simple dictionary API)
     - a single step, reusing a dictionary (described as Bulk-processing
       dictionary API)
 
   Advanced experimental functions can be accessed using
   `#define ZSTD_STATIC_LINKING_ONLY` before including zstd.h.
 
   Advanced experimental APIs should never be used with a dynamically-linked
   library. They are not "stable"; their definitions or signatures may change in
   the future. Only static linking is allowed.

 *  Streaming compression - HowTo
 *
 *  A ZSTD_CStream object is required to track streaming operation.
 *  Use ZSTD_createCStream() and ZSTD_freeCStream() to create/release resources.
 *  ZSTD_CStream objects can be reused multiple times on consecutive compression operations.
 *  It is recommended to re-use ZSTD_CStream since it will play nicer with system's memory, by re-using already allocated memory.
 *
 *  For parallel execution, use one separate ZSTD_CStream per thread.
 *
 *  note : since v1.3.0, ZSTD_CStream and ZSTD_CCtx are the same thing.
 *
 *  Parameters are sticky : when starting a new compression on the same context,
 *  it will re-use the same sticky parameters as previous compression session.
 *  When in doubt, it's recommended to fully initialize the context before usage.
4ec95e82
 *  Use ZSTD_CCtx_reset() to reset the context and ZSTD_CCtx_setParameter(),
 *  ZSTD_CCtx_setPledgedSrcSize(), or ZSTD_CCtx_loadDictionary() and friends to
 *  set more specific parameters, the pledged source size, or load a dictionary.
e75aad78
 *
4ec95e82
 *  Use ZSTD_compressStream2() with ZSTD_e_continue as many times as necessary to
 *  consume input stream. The function will automatically update both `pos`
 *  fields within `input` and `output`.
 *  Note that the function may not consume the entire input, for example, because
 *  the output buffer is already full, in which case `input.pos < input.size`.
e75aad78
 *  The caller must check if input has been entirely consumed.
 *  If not, the caller must make some room to receive more compressed data,
 *  and then present again remaining input data.
4ec95e82
 *  note: ZSTD_e_continue is guaranteed to make some forward progress when called,
 *        but doesn't guarantee maximal forward progress. This is especially relevant
 *        when compressing with multiple threads. The call won't block if it can
 *        consume some input, but if it can't it will wait for some, but not all,
 *        output to be flushed.
 * @return : provides a minimum amount of data remaining to be flushed from internal buffers
e75aad78
 *           or an error code, which can be tested using ZSTD_isError().
 *
 *  At any moment, it's possible to flush whatever data might remain stuck within internal buffer,
4ec95e82
 *  using ZSTD_compressStream2() with ZSTD_e_flush. `output->pos` will be updated.
 *  Note that, if `output->size` is too small, a single invocation with ZSTD_e_flush might not be enough (return code > 0).
 *  In which case, make some room to receive more compressed data, and call again ZSTD_compressStream2() with ZSTD_e_flush.
 *  You must continue calling ZSTD_compressStream2() with ZSTD_e_flush until it returns 0, at which point you can change the
 *  operation.
 *  note: ZSTD_e_flush will flush as much output as possible, meaning when compressing with multiple threads, it will
 *        block until the flush is complete or the output buffer is full.
e75aad78
 *  @return : 0 if internal buffers are entirely flushed,
 *            >0 if some data still present within internal buffer (the value is minimal estimation of remaining size),
 *            or an error code, which can be tested using ZSTD_isError().
 *
4ec95e82
 *  Calling ZSTD_compressStream2() with ZSTD_e_end instructs to finish a frame.
e75aad78
 *  It will perform a flush and write frame epilogue.
 *  The epilogue is required for decoders to consider a frame completed.
4ec95e82
 *  flush operation is the same, and follows same rules as calling ZSTD_compressStream2() with ZSTD_e_flush.
 *  You must continue calling ZSTD_compressStream2() with ZSTD_e_end until it returns 0, at which point you are free to
 *  start a new frame.
 *  note: ZSTD_e_end will flush as much output as possible, meaning when compressing with multiple threads, it will

 *
 *  Use ZSTD_decompressStream() repetitively to consume your input.
 *  The function will update both `pos` fields.
 *  If `input.pos < input.size`, some input has not been consumed.
 *  It's up to the caller to present again remaining data.
 *  The function tries to flush all data decoded immediately, respecting output buffer size.
 *  If `output.pos < output.size`, decoder has flushed everything it could.
 *  But if `output.pos == output.size`, there might be some data left within internal buffers.,
 *  In which case, call ZSTD_decompressStream() again to flush whatever remains in the buffer.
 *  Note : with no additional input provided, amount of data flushed is necessarily <= ZSTD_BLOCKSIZE_MAX.
 * @return : 0 when a frame is completely decoded and fully flushed,
 *        or an error code, which can be tested using ZSTD_isError(),

      * Zstd currently supports the use of a CDict in three ways:
e75aad78
      *
      * - The contents of the CDict can be copied into the working context. This
      *   means that the compression can search both the dictionary and input
      *   while operating on a single set of internal tables. This makes
      *   the compression faster per-byte of input. However, the initial copy of
      *   the CDict's tables incurs a fixed cost at the beginning of the
      *   compression. For small compressions (< 8 KB), that copy can dominate
      *   the cost of the compression.
      *
      * - The CDict's tables can be used in-place. In this model, compression is
      *   slower per input byte, because the compressor has to search two sets of
      *   tables. However, this model incurs no start-up cost (as long as the
      *   working context's tables can be reused). For small inputs, this can be
      *   faster than copying the CDict's tables.
      *
4ec95e82
      * - The CDict's tables are not used at all, and instead we use the working
      *   context alone to reload the dictionary and use params based on the source
      *   size. See ZSTD_compress_insertDictionary() and ZSTD_compress_usingDict().
      *   This method is effective when the dictionary sizes are very small relative
      *   to the input size, and the input size is fairly large to begin with.
      *
e75aad78
      * Zstd has a simple internal heuristic that selects which strategy to use
      * at the beginning of a compression. However, if experimentation shows that
      * Zstd is making poor choices, it is possible to override that choice with
      * this enum.

   Buffer-less streaming compression (synchronous mode)
 
   A ZSTD_CCtx object is required to track streaming operations.
   Use ZSTD_createCCtx() / ZSTD_freeCCtx() to manage resource.
   ZSTD_CCtx object can be re-used multiple times within successive compression operations.
 
   Start by initializing a context.
   Use ZSTD_compressBegin(), or ZSTD_compressBegin_usingDict() for dictionary compression,
   or ZSTD_compressBegin_advanced(), for finer parameter control.
   It's also possible to duplicate a reference context which has already been initialized, using ZSTD_copyCCtx()
 
   Then, consume your input using ZSTD_compressContinue().
   There are some important considerations to keep in mind when using this advanced function :
   - ZSTD_compressContinue() has no internal buffer. It uses externally provided buffers only.
   - Interface is synchronous : input is consumed entirely and produces 1+ compressed blocks.
   - Caller must ensure there is enough space in `dst` to store compressed data under worst case scenario.
     Worst case evaluation is provided by ZSTD_compressBound().
     ZSTD_compressContinue() doesn't guarantee recover after a failed compression.
   - ZSTD_compressContinue() presumes prior input ***is still accessible and unmodified*** (up to maximum distance size, see WindowLog).
     It remembers all previous contiguous blocks, plus one separated memory segment (which can itself consists of multiple contiguous blocks)
   - ZSTD_compressContinue() detects that prior input has been overwritten when `src` buffer overlaps.
     In which case, it will "discard" the relevant memory section from its history.
 
   Finish a frame with ZSTD_compressEnd(), which will write the last block(s) and optional checksum.
   It's possible to use srcSize==0, in which case, it will write a final empty block to end the frame.
   Without last block mark, frames are considered unfinished (hence corrupted) by compliant decoders.
 
   `ZSTD_CCtx` object can be re-used (ZSTD_compressBegin()) to compress again.

 /*-
   Buffer-less streaming decompression (synchronous mode)
 
   A ZSTD_DCtx object is required to track streaming operations.
   Use ZSTD_createDCtx() / ZSTD_freeDCtx() to manage it.
   A ZSTD_DCtx object can be re-used multiple times.
 
   First typical operation is to retrieve frame parameters, using ZSTD_getFrameHeader().
   Frame header is extracted from the beginning of compressed frame, so providing only the frame's beginning is enough.
   Data fragment must be large enough to ensure successful decoding.
  `ZSTD_frameHeaderSize_max` bytes is guaranteed to always be large enough.
   @result : 0 : successful decoding, the `ZSTD_frameHeader` structure is correctly filled.
            >0 : `srcSize` is too small, please provide at least @result bytes on next attempt.
            errorCode, which can be tested using ZSTD_isError().
 
   It fills a ZSTD_frameHeader structure with important information to correctly decode the frame,
   such as the dictionary ID, content size, or maximum back-reference distance (`windowSize`).
   Note that these values could be wrong, either because of data corruption, or because a 3rd party deliberately spoofs false information.
   As a consequence, check that values remain within valid application range.
   For example, do not allocate memory blindly, check that `windowSize` is within expectation.
   Each application can set its own limits, depending on local restrictions.
   For extended interoperability, it is recommended to support `windowSize` of at least 8 MB.
 
   ZSTD_decompressContinue() needs previous data blocks during decompression, up to `windowSize` bytes.
   ZSTD_decompressContinue() is very sensitive to contiguity,
   if 2 blocks don't follow each other, make sure that either the compressor breaks contiguity at the same place,
   or that previous contiguous segment is large enough to properly handle maximum back-reference distance.
   There are multiple ways to guarantee this condition.
 
   The most memory efficient way is to use a round buffer of sufficient size.
   Sufficient size is determined by invoking ZSTD_decodingBufferSize_min(),
   which can @return an error code if required value is too large for current system (in 32-bits mode).
   In a round buffer methodology, ZSTD_decompressContinue() decompresses each block next to previous one,
   up to the moment there is not enough room left in the buffer to guarantee decoding another full block,
   which maximum size is provided in `ZSTD_frameHeader` structure, field `blockSizeMax`.
   At which point, decoding can resume from the beginning of the buffer.
   Note that already decoded data stored in the buffer should be flushed before being overwritten.
 
   There are alternatives possible, for example using two or more buffers of size `windowSize` each, though they consume more memory.
 
   Finally, if you control the compression process, you can also ignore all buffer size rules,
   as long as the encoder and decoder progress in "lock-step",
   aka use exactly the same buffer sizes, break contiguity at the same place, etc.
 
   Once buffers are setup, start decompression, with ZSTD_decompressBegin().
   If decompression requires a dictionary, use ZSTD_decompressBegin_usingDict() or ZSTD_decompressBegin_usingDDict().
 
   Then use ZSTD_nextSrcSizeToDecompress() and ZSTD_decompressContinue() alternatively.
   ZSTD_nextSrcSizeToDecompress() tells how many bytes to provide as 'srcSize' to ZSTD_decompressContinue().
   ZSTD_decompressContinue() requires this _exact_ amount of bytes, or it will fail.
 
  @result of ZSTD_decompressContinue() is the number of bytes regenerated within 'dst' (necessarily <= dstCapacity).
   It can be zero : it just means ZSTD_decompressContinue() has decoded some metadata item.
   It can also be an error code, which can be tested with ZSTD_isError().
 
   A frame is fully decoded when ZSTD_nextSrcSizeToDecompress() returns zero.
   Context can then be reset to start a new decompression.
 
   Note : it's possible to know if next input to present is a header or a block, using ZSTD_nextInputType().
   This information is not required to properly decode a frame.
 
   == Special case : skippable frames ==
 
   Skippable frames allow integration of user-defined data into a flow of concatenated frames.
   Skippable frames will be ignored (skipped) by decompressor.
   The format of skippable frames is as follows :
   a) Skippable frame ID - 4 Bytes, Little endian format, any value from 0x184D2A50 to 0x184D2A5F
   b) Frame Size - 4 Bytes, Little endian format, unsigned 32-bits
   c) Frame Content - any content (User Data) of length equal to Frame Size
   For skippable frames ZSTD_getFrameHeader() returns zfhPtr->frameType==ZSTD_skippableFrame.
   For skippable frames ZSTD_decompressContinue() always returns 0 : it only skips the content.

     Block functions produce and decode raw zstd blocks, without frame metadata.
4ec95e82
     Frame metadata cost is typically ~12 bytes, which can be non-negligible for very small blocks (< 100 bytes).
     But users will have to take in charge needed metadata to regenerate data, such as compressed and content sizes.
e75aad78
 
     A few rules to respect :
     - Compressing and decompressing require a context structure
       + Use ZSTD_createCCtx() and ZSTD_createDCtx()
     - It is necessary to init context before starting
       + compression : any ZSTD_compressBegin*() variant, including with dictionary
       + decompression : any ZSTD_decompressBegin*() variant, including with dictionary
       + copyCCtx() and copyDCtx() can be used too
     - Block size is limited, it must be <= ZSTD_getBlockSize() <= ZSTD_BLOCKSIZE_MAX == 128 KB
       + If input is larger than a block size, it's necessary to split input data into multiple blocks
4ec95e82
       + For inputs larger than a single block, consider using regular ZSTD_compress() instead.
         Frame metadata is not that costly, and quickly becomes negligible as source size grows larger than a block.
     - When a block is considered not compressible enough, ZSTD_compressBlock() result will be 0 (zero) !
       ===> In which case, nothing is produced into `dst` !
       + User __must__ test for such outcome and deal directly with uncompressed data
       + A block cannot be declared incompressible if ZSTD_compressBlock() return value was != 0.
         Doing so would mess up with statistics history, leading to potential data corruption.
       + ZSTD_decompressBlock() _doesn't accept uncompressed data as input_ !!
e75aad78
       + In case of multiple successive blocks, should some of them be uncompressed,
         decoder must be informed of their existence in order to follow proper history.
         Use ZSTD_insertBlock() for such a case.
