[REBOL] Re: compression

From: greggirwin:starband at: 12-Sep-2001 9:44

Hi Hallvard, << I'm creating a GIF. Rebol has a built-in native compress function. What kind of compression is it? Has anyone written a LZW compressor / decompressor? I've been looking through the online script archive, but didn't find anything. I've written one previously, in java, but I'd very much like not to have to do it again--- >> I'm not clear on what you need. Do you want something to compress the GIF file once it's created, or do you need something that will compress a buffer that goes into the GIF file? I'm guessing the latter because, otherwise, you could just use REBOL's compression. In that case I don't have anything on hand. Ole Friis has a Huffman example on REBOL forces, and I just did a very quick RLE, but I don't know of LZW in REBOL. --Gregg
