AUTHORS contains a list of primary authors.
ChangeLog contains a brief list of changes by dates.
LICENSE contains the GPL, the license that this software is released under.
README is a feeble attempt at a README.
TODO is a list of things to do.
buffer.c is the source to some bit and byte buffer routines.
comp_delta.c is the source to a "Delta" compression routine.
comp_fail.c is a stub for algorithms that are not compiled into DACT.
comp_mzlib.c is the source to a call to zlib's compress(), after modifying data.
comp_plain.c is the source to a compression routine that does no compression.
comp_range.c is a wrapper around Michael Schindler's range encoding routines.
comp_rle.c is the source to an RLE compression algorithm.
comp_snibble.c is the source to a seminibble compression routine.
comp_text.c is the source to a compression routine that works well on text.
comp_zlib.c is the source to a wrapper around zlib.
dact-snapshot.tar.gz is a daily snapshot of the DACT source code. (Warning, this may not work. In fact, it will probably not only NOT work, but also cause damage to your machine and/or yourself and/or the universe as a whole.)
dact.c is the source to DACT's main function.
dact.tar.gz is the latest version of the DACT compressor.
sort.c contains sorting routines.

Documentation is NOT a last resort. It's FIRST choice.
