File Compression Projects main idea is to develop a compression software which can be easily transferred on the slower internet connection. This application will compress bits and byte of the file and it takes less space on the disk. This application is a system based software which is alternative to that of winzip and winrar. In this application we use GZIP algorithm.

The main algorithms are:

  • GZIP algorithm

GZIP is a open source software which can be downloaded for free of cost. It is same that of gzip that was used in UNIX system. Gzip is gnu compression software which was widely used in UNIX systems. Gzip is developed using DEFLAT algorithm which is a combination of LZ77 and HUFFMAN coding.
