    please help me in getting the source code of zlib
    Are you serious? The link to the source code is on zlib's homepage...

    Seriously, if you can't enact the problem solving skills it takes to do a google search and download some files, how do you hope to accomplish the ambitious task of merging file compression code into your own application?

    Anyways, to answer your question, go to www.zlib.net, scroll halfway down the page and click the link underneath the text that says "zlib source code".

    Oh, and to answer your second question: another link on zlib's homepage is completely dedicated to giving a well documented example on how to use the library via C code. Here you go.

    ? The source code is only in C format, no Java and no .NET that I see in the package. Go to www.zlib.net, hit Ctrl-F (or whatever "find in page" is in your browser), and type "source code". You'll be taken straight to the tar-ball of the source.

    I downloaded it right when I answered the question, so there's nothing wrong with the package.

    If you're "unzipping", be sure that you're getting the zip file (third one down).
