I have a client server program. I need the large data packets that flow between client and server should be compressed to reduce network IO. How in VC++ I can compress strings.
Note:I do not have to compress files.

thnx in advance

Hi!
You can use ZLIB library (http://www.gzip.org/zlib/) to compress/decompress memory blocks.

This depends upon the type of data, you can use RLE compression that is straight forward to implement (this gets satisfactory results wih textual data),  huffman encoding can also be used.

If you donot care about compressing it yourself then use some third party libraries, one good commonly used one is ZLIB as mentioned above.
