 Hi.

  I need code to compress/decompress bitmap images in JPEG without passing through a file, it must be done completelly in memory for speed's sake.

Thanks.

Try Ilib:
www.radix.net/~cknudsen/Ilib

It supports both jpeg and bmp.

Good Luck !

PS
You didn't specify programming language, the above library is in c.
It's easy to use and have examples with it (if c is your programming language).

Not that this is immediately applicable, but Gamasutra has just run an article regarding JPEG compression/decompression.  It does pick out a few nice subtleties about the time critical paths and such, maakes it worth a read.

Oh, forgot about the password thing.  Start at www.gamasutra.com to register.  They're good about not spamming or dropping lots of tracking cookies, and the content is good, so registration is worthwhile there.

But destroying IE's buttons!  Hee, hee, yet another reason not to use IE!
