This is a simple class that can be used to serialized and unserialize variable values to a compressed binary string.

It takes a variable values, serializes and compresses it with gzip algorithm to occupy less space.

The class can also do the opposite, i.e. uncompress and unserialize a variable value.

Serialization is a process to convert PHP variable values into a flat text strings.

When a variable is complex array or object structure, the resulting serialized string may be very long and take too much space.

This class provides a solution to reduce the size of serialized value strings by using compression.
