in reply to Is Compress::LZF_PP compatible with Compress::LZF?

I'm not sure, since I've never used either module.

But what happens if you do the decompress with LZF instead of LZF_PP? If that DOES get you the original string, then it does seem likely they're incompatible.

Also, does the round-trip work if you compress/decompress with LZF_PP?

    Yes - roundtrip with Compress::LZF works fine. But files that I dealing were compressed with some funky Java implementation of Ziv-Lempel - I tried decompressing them using LZF and it failed - so I thought I would try LZF_PP so I can at least debug what is going wrong. But as it seems LZF_PP has some issues...
