[REBOL] Re: Compress vs gzip/zlib

From: larry:ecotope at: 24-Jun-2002 16:14

Hi Jose RT has stated that REBOL compression uses the same algorithm as gzip, but REBOL does not create the gzip header. -Larry ----- Original Message ----- From: "jose" <[jjmmes--yahoo--es]> To: <[rebol-list--rebol--com]> Sent: Monday, June 24, 2002 3:42 PM Subject: [REBOL] Compress vs gzip/zlib I4ve compressed a text file first with REBOL's compress write/binary %file.comp compress read/binary %file and then with the gzip utility and found out that the files only differ by a few bytes. If I look at the binary stream it looks like that except for a few bytes at the beginning the rest is the same. Can anybody shed some light on this ? It would be useful to have compatibility with gzip Thanks Jose _______________________________________________________________ Copa del Mundo de la FIFA 2002 El znico lugar de Internet con vmdeos de los 64 partidos. !Apzntante ya! en
