     This source code is the interpretation about the Mike's theory about image compresion. This is an algorythm to find the similar pieces of image and try to make it one. I think that it is useful for who wants to make an image scanner or similar work and too for who want to make FX with image due the tratament of image in this code. I use CopyMemory, FillMemory and GetDIs to make the process faster than a common VB functions. I think you can learn about this API that are very useful when you wanna make a better and faster algorythm. I don't make the module of GetDIs, this module was written by Marco Samy - You can download his source code at: If you think that this code is useful and you wanna make it better, feel free. And please, post comments about it to say what do you think. The Mike theory is in the zip file but you can download at: Thanks

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
