Exercise: Data Compression Efficiency

Practice how to implement a command-line script for data compression of a file using zlib module algorithms.

Problem statement

Write a command-line script that takes a file as input and compresses it using the different algorithms available in the zlib module (Brotli, Deflate, Gzip). You want to produce a summary table that compares the algorithm’s compression time and compression efficiency on the given file.
