Extra info and code examples

Eet is a tiny library designed to write an arbitrary set of chunks of data to a file and optionally compress each chunk (very much like a zip file) and allows fast random-access reading of the file later on. It does not do zip as zip itself has more complexity than needed, and it was much simpler to implement this once here. This package contains eet, an utility that allows you to extract, insert, encode and decode config blobs created with libeet.
