     Re-upload. A Pascal program using a variation of Huffman and LZW compression from way back in the 90s. Worked SO well for so many years. Easier to understand concepts if you follow the code. NOT ported over to VB, but more to use for ease of understanding.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

At this time, 1531 people have viewed this project. That means 1531 people would have to port the code...just to see if it will compile, let alone runs. works. If a VB class project were to do what this code purports and you turned in a different language with a note, "if you want to do what this code is supposed to do, use this as a guide to actually write what we were supposed to turn in." ...or... if you were given an interview assignment (to do on the spot) and you turned over a different language, would you get the job?

Phil, Be constructive. Site is designed for sharing of knowledge for programmers to review, and improve themselves and their programs. It is not for leeching, and taking others code, but rather to learn from them to improve oneself. As stated, read the code to understand a concept, rather than giving you code to 'pass your interview'.
