I just wanted to share this resource I found for using ZLIB very easily! The code is in the zlibtool.zip file at the end. The folder of great use is "zlibengn". Basically it is a premade wrapper for using ZLIB. It's really easy to use as well, here's a short demo:
#include "zlibengn.h"

#pragma comment(lib,"zdll.lib")

ZlibEngine z;

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
	z.compress( "zlib.h","zlib.h__");
	z.decompress( "zlib.h__", "test.h");
	return 0;
The main reason I am sharing this is because I could not find any good tutorials or helpful posts in GameDev that made using ZLIB easy (something for dummies such as myself [smile]). I tried searching google, but could not really find a "simple spoon feeding" type of explanation/sample code. I hope this can be of some use to someone, as it has been for me. Cheers! - Drew
