packJPG, packMP3, packPNM, packARI, packHUF, packLZH and unpackJPG are now updated with new contact information and some minor bugfixes. This step was required because the original home of packJPG on the HTW Aalen University website is closing soon (granted, that website is severely outdated now, too). With the original website closing, my original contact adress on the HTW Aalen email domain won’t work anymore, too.
If you haven’t updated my contact info yet, you may contact me anytime via firstname.lastname@example.org
Needless to say, this step was long overdue. You may now download all of my source codes, follow my development, fork my software and collaborate with me on my official GitHub repo.
This blog will still get updated, but only with public releases.
Developing packLZH, I revised the huffman coding classes for better compatibility with special cases. Here’s the packHUF update containing the new routines:
- revised huffman coding routines
- no external handling of special cases needed anymore
Compression-wise there are no improvements. This only does some basic huffman coding and is intended as a base for other projects rather than be used on it’s own.
A minor update to one of my lesser known compression tools.
- source code cleanup and beautification
- file name creation bug fixed
Remember that this only does some basic huffman coding and is intended as a base for your own projects rather than for being used on it’s own.
