compression library for c and php
To save network traffic I'd like to compress my data. The only trick is that I the client is a c application and the server is php. I'm looking for an open source compression library that's available for both c and php.
I guess I could write an external c application to decompress my data, but I'm trying to avoid spawning extra processes on the server.
If you know of any, please post it!
Php supports zlib compression and for the c compression you could use zlib, but you should think again if you want to compress network communication - the load will probably be too much for your servers.
