    Tools to display lz compressed data content

    Does anyone know any existing tools that can display content of LZ compressed data, e.g., lz4 or deflate? It is not a decoder, but rather one step before the decoder, i.e., own shows, say (L, 6)(M, 10, 20) etc, where ( L,6) stands for a literal of length 6, and (M,10,20) stands for a match with length 10 and a step of 20 away.

    I know it is not hard to write such a tool, but just wondering if such tools already exist. ( Just lazy ).

    Thanks in advance for help tips.

    They do exist, just that its usually easier to hack a decoder for this, rather than making a special tool.
    Here I did it for deflate.
