Hi,
what is the difference "gzip" and "deflate"?

how do i compress and decompress by deflate algorithm (no gzip!)
Posted

As CPallini said the Wikipedia article is a good place to start, you should also learn to use Google, the first few hits would give you the answers you are looking for. Anyway, read this article[^] for an explanation of the Deflate algorithm. There is some example code of the Deflate algorithm here[^].

The gzip Wikipedia page[^] sheds some light on the argument.

Since gzip is a free implementation of the deflate algorithm I see no reason why you shouldn't use it. Anyway you might also write your own deflate implementation.
