here is an very interesting compression program with sources,
which combines the power of the PAQ8 - compression - algorithm
with the most popular archive file format (zip),
but it is only a testversion from march 2008
The best ratio compressor(paq8, using the lpaq8 version)
+ the most popular archive file format(zip).
Integration of lpaq8 + info-zip
zip is quick at deleting/adding/extracting specific files to the archive, you don't have to uncompress the whole archive to delete/add/extract one file. Because of these flexible features the compression ratio isn't as good as tar+lpaq,lpq,etc. especially when you have lots of smaller files in the archive.
By default zip is set to lpaq,
to use normal zip again use the "-Zdeflate" option
you are now developing the zpaq - program
have you had a look at this interesting program?
This program has already archiv-features
like compressing all files within a dir incl. subdirectories
