    File compression

    Acording to the Microsoft documentation the following functions are used to decompress files that were compressed by the Lempel-Ziv algorithm:

    GetExpandedName
    LZClose
    LZCopy
    LZInit
    LZOpenFile
    LZRead
    LZSeek

    oK but, is there a way to compress files programmatically? If there isn't, how can I compress files so that I can decompress them later using the API described before?

    Implement your own the algorithm.
