Featured news story about mod_gzip and HTTP compression at webreference site...

mod_gzip home page ( Contains links for downloading all pre-compiled

Linux, UNIX, etc. Also contains links for downloading SOURCE CODE.)...

mod_gzip online FAQ...

Pre-compiled binary sizes...
Windows - ApacheModuleGzip.dll - Only 38k
Linux - - Only 57k
Solaris7 64-bit version - - Only 58k

Source code: mod_gzip.c ( Only 161k complete )

There are no header files or any other source code files.
mod_gzip.c is the only source code file there is.

There is also no requirement for any 3rd party compression
libraries whatsoever. All the code that mod_gzip needs is
in mod_gzip.c itself.

mod_gzip.c contains a highly optimized and Web-Server
thread safe version of the LZ77 + Huffman compression 
technique that has come to be known as GZIP.

Runs perfectly as either an external DSO load module or built
right into the core.
