We are looking for a (source) library to compress/uncompress a file while
reading/writing it. I know that this is a planned feature of gzip, but
unfortunately we can't wait that long.
In our program we are reading and writing a lot of big files and we rather
don't want the overhead of starting and stopping an executable (gzip).
Compression is however wanted, gzip compresses an 8 Mbyte file to merely
700K, thus a compression library is searched for. We did made our own library,
but it was quite inferior (speed and compression factor) to gzip.
The library should be available for SunOS 4.x and Solaris 2.x and suitable
for a C++ (or C) programming environment.
If you know such a library or can direct me further, please contact me.
