64bit aPLib
« on: October 17, 2016, 01:17:10 AM »
Joergen Ibsen has 64bit asm code for depacking his aPLib compressed buffers.
Unfortunately it appears to be fasm.
My 32bit ML knowledge is poor at best and with NO fasm experience I am way over my head in porting it to ML64.
Any volunteers?

James,

Why bother to port it when it has 64 bit library support for both compression and decompression ?

Hutch,
  I know I can use the aPLib.lib for both compression and decompression but it is not very granulated and a bit slow.
I have used aPLib in the past for work with PowerBASIC where I used the dll to compress Spread 3.0 format files. They can be HUGE. I then ported the aP_depack_asm_fast asm code to PowerBASIC for use in my exe's. Blazingly fast.

I want to do similar coding now with 64bit.
