This module provides a Perl interface to allow reading and writing of
lzma files/buffers.


Before you can build IO-Compress-Lzma you need to have the following
installed on your system:

    * Perl 5.006 or better.
    * Compress::Raw::Lzma
    * IO::Compress


Assuming you have met all the prerequisites, the module can now be built
using this sequence of commands:

    perl Makefile.PL
    make test


To install IO-Compress-Lzma, run the command below:

    make install



General feedback/questions/bug reports should be sent to (preferred) or


How to report a problem with IO-Compress-Lzma.

To help me help you, I need all of the following information:

 1. The Versions of everything relevant.
    This includes:

     a. The *complete* output from running this

            perl -V

        Do not edit the output in any way.
        Note, I want you to run "perl -V" and NOT "perl -v".

        If your perl does not understand the "-V" option it is too
        old. This module needs Perl version 5.004 or better.

     b. The version of IO-Compress-Lzma you have.
        If you have successfully installed IO-Compress-Lzma, this one-liner
        will tell you:

           perl -MIO::Compress::Lzma -e 'print qq[ver $IO::Compress::Lzma::VERSION\n]'

        If you are  running windows use this

           perl -MIO::Compress::Lzma -e "print qq[ver $IO::Compress::Lzma::VERSION\n]"

        If you haven't installed IO-Compress-Lzma then search
        for a line like this:

          $VERSION = "2.101" ;

 2. If you are having problems building IO-Compress-Lzma, send me a
    complete log of what happened. Start by unpacking the IO-Compress-Lzma
    module into a fresh directory and keep a log of all the steps

        [edit, if necessary]
        perl Makefile.PL
        make test TEST_VERBOSE=1
