    Jim,

    I will appreciate if you could send me a copy of the compression
    code too.

    Thanks in advance.

    Jim,

    I was about to take you up on the offer of your compression
    source but I could not find your email address. It would be
    most appreciated if you would point a copy over my way.

    I wrote a compression program a while back using the same backtracking method as pkzip. Email me for the source code if you want it.

    I tossed my Hoffman compression routines and purchased Big Speed.
    It was mentioned on another thread, is cheap, and has its routines
    set up so creating a zip achive is easy yet very flexable. Considerably faster than WinZip.

    Other places to look for code are

    All BASIC Code Archives (Definitely has some compression routines) http://www.basicguru.com/abc/

    VBNet http://www.mvps.org/vbnet/

    You can build cab files too.

    See my site.

    Im using it to let my customers compress the scripts that they write for my program. Most scripts are under 5kb, although I had one that was 31kb - down to 8kb after compression. At 30kb, compression took approx half a second, and decompression seemed instant. Perfect for what i want to do! Cheers

    I should note that if you're compressing large files (2mb+) the compression algorithm is very slow. Decompression is still fast, however. I usually use zlib for the big stuff as it is very fast.

    Don,
    Somehow your LZ77 example escaped my search, but I just tried it and I love it! It's a superb implementation which is perfect for my purpose, I cannot thank you enough kind sir!

    Also, checkout zlib - it's a free compression dll. James Fuller (i think) has posted headers for the zlib library either here or on his site. Do a search for zlib and you'll probably find the info.

    Search this web bbs for lz or compression and you should find source to PB compression routines that i posted some time ago.

    Gregery, Ive tried most of the planetsourcecode ones - I was unable to convert many of them to PB as I've only owned PB for three days! Still getting used to it - I got stumped when the best-looking Huffman compression algorithm used a Collection
    There does seem to be some excellent compression examples available there (or at least theyve been rated Excellent , but I guess i'll have to read more of my PB book before I can convert them. I better get back to work Many thanks anyway!

    I remember running accross some VB code for Huffman Compression
    Scheme. You can search for it at www.planetsourcecode.com

    started a topic Compression algorithms

    Compression algorithms

    A search across all forums for "compress" yielded many results but none that were fruitful / supported all 256 characters / relatively easy to implement / decompressed to exact string with absolutely no lossiness !
    Does anyone have any compression algorithms hidden away in their pockets?
