Projects / DACT


DACT is a compression tool designed to compress a file dynamically, choosing the algorithm that works best per block of input data to produce an overall smaller output file.


Recent releases

    Release Notes: The CRC algorithm was changed from ELF CRC32 to Adler32 (hooks were left in for backwards compatibility). Many things (including the header) were changed to support files larger than 2GB. There is now a `libdact' but no useful symbols are exported yet (an API is still being developed). The shared object check was fixed to work properly on Cygwin. Win32 support through MingW32 is now a lot more mature and actually works.
