Subject Re: Blob Compression
Author spec_tech_2000
Unfortunatly, doing this on the client side is not possible. I have
some code that should do what I need but I am still not sure hoe to
impliment it.

I guess what I need to do is step back and better understand blobs,
compression, and filters. Does anyone have any good references for me
to study? Any websites with detailed explainations on implimenting a
filter from start to finish?

Thank you,
