aPLib is a 32-bit compression library based on the compression algorithm used in aPACK (my executable compressor). aPLib is an easy-to-use alternative to many of the heavy-weight compression libraries available.
The compression ratios achieved by aPLib combined with the speed and tiny footprint of the depackers (as low as 169 bytes!) makes it the ideal choice for many products.
Since the first public release in 1998, aPLib has been one of the top pure LZ-based compression libraries available. It is used in a wide range of products including executable compression and protection software, archivers, games, embedded systems, and handheld devices.
aPLib works with most compilers / linkers, e.g.:
Borland C/C++ - Delphi - DJGPP - GCC - GNAT
MASM32 - MinGW - Pelles C - TASM - TMT Pascal
Visual C++ - Virtual Pascal - Watcom C/C++
aPLib has been successfully tested under a number of x86 platforms:
DOS / Windows - BeOS - FreeBSD - Linux - OS/2 - QNX
