efficient compression algorithm pls
need an efficient algorithm for text compression, becoz of constraint of time cannot search the web extensively. have searched the web but then again couldnt read them all. our project is "packet compression". we intend to compress the data in the packet and also if possible the header. one of our seniors said that if the compression is not atleast 30% the change wont be noticeable. so if someone could suggest an efficient(both in time and compression ratio) algorithm it would be of great help. thanx in advance.
