    For compressing a single file, why use perl? You could use gzip on the command line.

    If it needs to be in perl, look at Compress::Zlib. The manual has lots of info about gzip support.

    $dest = Compress::Zlib::memGzip ($buffer); $dest = Compress::Zlib::memGunzip ($buffer);

    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
