Header Compression Code

This toolkit uses high-level descriptions of various protocols to generate Linux C source that implements appropriate header compression algorithms for them. Further introductory information can be found in our MobiCom 2000 paper, A Unified Header Compression Framework for Low-Bandwidth Links.

The implementation below is targeted for Linux 2.0.36 using the PPP 2.3.5 communication layer. Further ports are possible; the idea is to use a single, platform-independent description of a protocol in conjunction with this toolkit which may be ported to many platforms.
