     Deflate and inflate modules. I saw the article from Jim Reforma about how a deflate algorithm should work and noticed that people asked for working Deflate code. well here it is. This code can be used to create filetypes wich used Deflate as compression algo (ZIP,GZIP,CAB, etc.etc). The only thing you have to do is create the headerdata for these formats.(don't get me wrong but this can be a lot of work(bin there, Done that)). Don't expect to much of the code in terms of speed since it's all coded in VB, it is pretty fast but not by a long shot as fast as winzip. If you plan to code a ZIP compliant compressor, then take a look at my Archive Explorer And you will have ALMOST everything you need to know.

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
