in reply to gzip written in perl

I can tell you, it'll be slow. But that'll be useful to do it, though. There is a C version of gunzip that's nicely small off of the IOCCC.

[stevieb]: I am thankful that I fell into Perl years ago in the manner I did. I don't believe there is another language that people care about so much, that they're willing to give everything. Langs come and go, but in Perl, it seems, things remain consistent.
[stevieb]: The people back then (~2000) are the same people now, but with much more experience. I'm appreciative that I fell into the Perl rabbit hole.
[stevieb]: Coding circles around Python devs, showing how unit tests should be done, enabling easy access to everything, learning basic C to wrap for direct hardware access... I am thankful.
[stevieb]: I'm in an appreciative mood. Thank you fellow Monks, for all I know, and for the knowledge which I can pass on
