Example #1 :
In this example we can see that by using zlib.decompress(s) method, we are able to decompress the compressed string in the byte format of string by using this method.






# import zlib and decompress
import zlib
  
  
s = b'This is GFG author, and final year student.'
   
# using zlib.compress(s) method
t = zlib.compress(s)
print("Compressed String")
print(t)
  
print("\nDecompressed String")
print(zlib.decompress(t))

Output :

Compressed String
b’x\x9c\x0b\xc9\xc8,V\x00″w7w\x85\xc4\xd2\x92\x8c\xfc”\x1d\x85\xc4\xbc\x14\x85\xb4\xcc\xbc\xc4\x1c\x85\xca\xd4\xc4″\x85\xe2\x92\xd2\x94\xd4\xbc\x12=\x00A\xc9\x0f\x0b’

Decompressed String
b’This is GFG author, and final year student.’

Example #2 :




# import zlib and decompress
import zlib
  
  
s = b'GeeksForGeeks@12345678'
   
# using zlib.compress(s) method
t = zlib.compress(s)
print("Compressed String")
print(t)
  
print("\nDecompressed String")
print(zlib.decompress(t))

Output :

Compressed String
b’x\x9csOM\xcd.v\xcb/r\x07\xd1\x0e\x86F\xc6&\xa6f\xe6\x16\x00X\xf6\x06\xea’

Decompressed String
b’GeeksForGeeks@12345678′
