GZIP on an FPGA
deflate comprises of LZ77 (which is a string matching compression) followed by static/dynamic huffman (which is a form of entropy coding). Dynamic huffman is a problem in itself, but for now, i have decided to stick with static huffman. My main issue is with doing LZ77 searching inside an FPGA. I need to be able to take an input character atleast once every clock cycle (or two).
So post here any links, comments, issues etc related to this issue. I will be building this up as a link bank.
