Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Please send me a copy of your LZRW1 paper.
Reprints of my LZRW1 paper are available from the IEEE.
Just ask for TH0373-1/91/0000/0362/$01.00.
Q: What is the latest information on the patent
status of your algorithms?
I don't know. I'm not keeping track of data compression patents.
The best information
I have is from a few years back and is given on the
Q: I can't find compress.h and port.h
You can find these in the file old_lzrw_headers.h as
described in the support code page.
Q: I can't get the compression C code to work
I can't get involved with debugging deployments of my
algorithms. However, you should be aware that
some of the C code for my LZRW algorithms has some
portability problems. These will be fixed if I release
up-to-date versions. In the meantime, if you run into
problems, I suggest that you run lint over the code
and see what turns up.
