Gipfeli - High Speed Compression Algorithm

Gipfeli is a high-speed compression algorithm that uses backward references with a 16-bit sliding window, based on 1977 paper by Lempel and Ziv, enriched with an ad-hoc entropy coding for both literals and backward references. We have implemented it in C++ and fine-tuned for very high performance. The compression ratio is similar to Zlib in the fastest mode… CONTINUE READING
