GRZipII project is a high-performance file compressor based on Burrows-Wheeler Transform.
GRZipII uses The Block-Sorting Lossless Data Compression Algorithm, which has received considerable attention over recent years for both its simplicity and effectiveness.
This implementation has compression rate of 2.234 bps on the Calgary Corpus(14 files) without preprocessing filters.
NOTE: GRZipII can't compress/uncompress pkzip/winzip files (*.zip).
