    I've used zlib very succesfully.  It doesnt have the call-back that infozip has.

    I'll hunt down the examples i found.  Uses 2 classes to handle all transactions.

    I am using your "GREAT EXAMPLE"  works pretty well.  However, after some testing I found that code does NOT support AES Encryption.  I am thinking that "GREAT EXAMPLE" will work for non-Encrypted files.

    I am now going to check out Lunchbytes xceedsoft component as it says it does AES encryption.  However, my goal is not to use a component if I can avoid it.
