This project is used for compress and decompress .doc and .txt files by this project we can compress the .doc and .txt files of up to 137kb size.
The compressed data can be stored on some storage media like a floppy disk or compact disk (cd).
Compression is important because it helps reduce the consumption of expensive resources, such as disk space or connection bandwidth. However compression requires information processing power , which can also be expensive.
It is the lossless type data compression it is often used to better use disk space on office computers, or better use the connection bandwidth in a computer network, for symbolic data such as spreadsheets , text, executable programs, etc. loss-less ness is essential because changing even a single bit cannot be tolerated (except in some limited cases).
The software works very well in any of the windows operating systems. The software can be used by any persons having some prior experience of working in the gui environment. In making this software programming languages c is used.
Finally the software is very easy to use and even a novice user can use the software in an efficient and error free manner.
Data compression is the process of encoding information using fewer bits, or information units, compression only works when both the sender and receiver of the information message have agreed on the encoding scheme.
Compression is important because it helps reduce the consumption of expensive resources, such as disk space or connection bandwidth.
The compressed data has to be decompressed before use the decompression technique is just the reverse of compression. Use of the right compression tools yields more compact and loss-less data output.
There are two type of data compression
Lossless data compression
Lossy data compression.
The loss-less technique generates an exact replica of the original data stream during decompression. This technique is used when storing data base records, spread sheets or word processing files.
