Deflating...

...not in the economical sense fortunately, except that it's all about economy of bits.

Following last post about limited-length Huffman trees, there is now the very early development of a compression algorithm for the so-called "Dynamic Deflate" compression format. From revision #297 the code (checkout here) seems to correctly compress data (correctly means that the data is correctly decoded, even by buggy but popular decoders...).
The efficiciency of the compression is in the works. Stay tuned!

Testing is welcome: build and use the ZipAda command-line tool, or use the Deflate_1 method in your code using the Zip-Ada library.
