Compression algorithims....

P: n/a
I went to the compression newsgroups, but all I saw was spam. So, I
thought I'd post his question here to get the best info I could from other
programmers.

Which compression algorithm offers the fastest compression of text data?

Which compression algorithm offers the best compression of text data?

I need to do in memory compression of text data before sending it over a
TCP connection. Zip is the old standby....but are there better algorithms
for speed or compression ratios?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Jim,

Search this newsgroup for it on Google

It has been very much spoken there in very much sitiations.
Fergus Cooney did a lot of research in it, so maybe you can have a look at
it.

But also others.

Looks like you were looking in the wrong groups. Try comp.compression it is
pretty active. One of the frequent posters in there maintains a good site
(http://www.datacompression.info). Not all links he points to are recent but
you can find some decent thing under 'benchmarks'
