This module lets you send the content of an HTTP response as gzip-compressed data. Certain browsers (e.g., Netscape and IE) can request content compression via the Content-Encoding header. This can speed things up if you're sending large files to your users through slow connections.
Browsers that don't request gzipped data will receive uncompressed data.
This module is compatibile with Apache::Filter, so you can compress the output of other content generators.
Available from CPAN. See the module manpage for more information.
