I want to add "zip like" file compression to an application I am writing.

Is there a freeware or cheap method to achieve this?

TIA - Chris

Check out the

DSP http://delphi.icm.edu.pl/ 

or Torry's http://www.torry.net

for components. A quick search on the DSP came back with a variety of compression components for ZLib, BZip, BZip2, RAR etc.
