Hi,
First of all the reason for my declarative display name is that I couldn't get a simple 'Vivek' or a symbolic '\/i\/e|<' or any other combination as my display name. So other Viveks left me with only this option.

Now my question:
I want to make a file compression and decompression tool for all type of files. I will implement existing algorithms and try to develop and implement new ones also. I want to use Java for this. Would this be a good choice? There are issues like I have to write(in a file) only 7 bits and not one byte. Also does the choice of the OS creates any differences? Which book should i study for this? Looking forward for answers.
Thanks

Hi Vivek,

if you just want to develop a java tool for zipping and unzipping generic files,
I'd advice you to get started, for example, with Sun's tutorial about Java classes
which deal with data compression: try
this article on Sun Tutorial.

Good work !
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
