    Default What the algorithms have been used in Winzip10.0 trial version?

    Hi All, just wonder if anyone know the algorithms behind the Winzip 10.0 trial version?

    What I know so far is that:

    - for maximum data compression is a hybrid of LZ77 and Huffman coding known as 'Deflate'. LZW (Lepmel-Ziv-Welch) coding is patented by Unisys, Deflate is (as far as I know) public domain.

    - Also use the repeated character compression algorithm.

    Is there anything else?

    Thanks a lot.

    10.0 appears to be using LZH + LZW + SF + Huff + PPMd, as reported via MaximumCompression
