    compression algorithms

    Does anyone know of a good site for compression algorithms in C/C++

    I was all over google but all I found was broken-refrences and books to buy.

    I just want to do a little research on compression algorithms for the heck of it.

    Check out the contest board :P

    Or look up Huffman compression and/or LZW compression. There's also arithmetic compression. (Personally, I find Huffman compression interesting, LZW not too exciting, and arithmetic confusing, but I've only read one thing on arithmetic compression)
    Away.

    Yeah I have read those but I just have a hard time believing that THAT is all there is to compression. Maybe I was looking at the wrong place, oh well.

    Compression is pretty simple in theory, but in practice it can be a bit harder to implement than it seems like it would be.
    Away.
