+# swapinzram for Slackware
+Modified swapinzram script by Didier Spaier
+http://slackware.uk/slint/x86_64/slint-15.0/source/swapinzram/
+
+
+The package swapinzram is intended to extend the swap spaces available
+beyond swap partitions and swap files, providing swap space in the form
+of a block device in compressed RAM, using the zram kernel module.
+As the files in it are compressed this results in an increase of the
+RAM size usable by the system at the cost of a small overhead to
+compress and decompress the files.
+
+This can be useful to:
+1. Avoid or at least delay swapping on a mass storage device when
+available space in RAM decreases. This results in a performance gain
+because writing in RAM is way faster that on a hard disk or even an SSD
+2. Less writing on a storage devices like flash drives, eMMC, USB flash
+drives or SD card, if the swap partition or file is installed on such
+devices.
+Beyond the performance gain this also minimizes wearing of the device.
+
+zram can also be used to create block devices in RAM for other usages,
+like to store the files in /tmp or the kernel log, but this is not in
+the scope of this package. However as we pick an available zram device
+id there should be no conflict when adding these features.
+
+Also in the TODO list, allow to write idle/incompressible pages to a
+backing storage rather than keeping them in memory. The documentation
+states that the backing storage should be a swap partition, not a swap
+file, but I will check if it's still true.

+# HOW TO EDIT THIS FILE:
+# The "handy ruler" below makes it easier to edit a package description.
+# Line up the first '|' above the ':' following the base package name, and
+# the '|' on the right side marks the last column you can put a character in.
+# You must make exactly 11 lines for the formatting to be correct. It's also
+# customary to leave one space after the ':' except on otherwise blank lines.

+swapinzram: swapinzram (Configure a swap block device in RAM)
+swapinzram:
+swapinzram: Zram creates a compressed block device in memory, and the RAM
+swapinzram: assigned to it is only used for swapping as-needed (until then, the
+swapinzram: RAM is still available for use by applications).
+swapinzram: Swap data stored is compressed thereby allowing more data to be
+swapinzram: stored in RAM.
