i've been working on a simple implementation of the deflate
compression algorithm

the code is available at the suckless repository now


it is still work in progress, i plan to use it in another project to
replace zlib. it does not do anything fancy (yet) but the compression
ratio and time is comparable with zlib compression level 9.

a simple command line tool for raw deflate, zlib, gzip and pkzip
stream compression and decompression is also provided

i would not use it for critical data yet
any feedback is appreciated
