Via r/programming today: How are zlib, gzip and zip related? What do they have in common and how are they different?
Wanted to know a little more about the pros and cons of different compression tools and strategies.
Found this article A Quick Benchmark: Gzip vs. Bzip2 vs. LZMA and looking at that gzip is a pretty clear winner I think wrt my concerns (i.e. fast compression over high compression). Also found gzip vs. bzip2 which concluded basically the same.
