LZDECOMP_L takes Latin data that was compressed using the LZCOMP_L function, uncompresses it, and returns an uncompressed Latin character string as the result.

Although you can call the function directly, LZDECOMP_L is normally used with algorithmic compression (ALC) to uncompress table columns previously compressed with LZCOMP_L.
