LZW Compression and Decompression

I was kinda down for last 4 days, thanks to BSNL broadband service. I missed several classes at #dgplug and missed talking and discussing with friends. But still, I tried a C program on Lempel Ziv Welch Compression and decompression Algorithm.

Actually I made it for one of my very special friends, who is currently at IIT Bombay doing her tiresome Project work. Though, the Algorithm wasn’t anything to give trouble, I missed perl and python very much.

After 3 hours of non stop coding and then 5 (!) hours of debugging session, I made it.

I’ve uploaded the code into my svn account at dgplug

Since then, I’m thinking about making the LZW Algorithm even more effective.

Something’s going to come up in few days. Watch out for that. 🙂

dgpLUG Summer Training

on June, 26 I got a mail from DgpLUG Mailing List. It was stated there that  they are going
to start an interactive session on Linux and the training period will
contain a Real Life project work also after completion of training.
Without waiting another moment, I sent my request email for
participating. So that’s how I came to IRC… Learned how to use it.
RTFM , obviously :).

Since then, I’ve gone through various classes like Programing in gcc (by Prasad J Pundit _pjp_), Shell by Rishi, Programing in Python and Vim Editor by Kushal Das himself and Program cross referencing and How to ask questions wisely!!! by mbuf, Parthan took Wiki… etc…

Last night Kushal took a very useful class on SVN. Though missed the entire thing due to Loadshedding..:P .. Ria helped me as ever! She guided me through the basics, and she told me that I was really fast learner! I’ve completed in 5 minites. So sweet. 🙂
