    Please help!
    I am currently transferring files using FTPGetFile in C. I would like to compress and decompress the files dynamically. Is this possible?

    What do you mean dynamically? Yes, you can compress the data, send the data, and then have the client decompress the data.

    Is there a C function that I can use to compress the files? If not, how do I do it from C?

    There are several solutions. One solution is to design your own compression. Another solution is to implement an existing compression. Lastly, download a DLL or COM server that has buildin compression features.

    I have found a few DLL's that might help, but they have bugs. Do you know of any that are complete and working? And where is the best place to look for them?
