BitCab is a bitmap compressor/cabinet program. It is a simple program not intended to compete seriously with the ’industrial strength’ file compressors. However it is a little different, being designed only for creating and handling compressed bitmap cabinet files (BMPCab).

Compression is often better than many general purpose ’zip’ programs and decompression reasonably quick. However it does depend on the color complexity of the bitmap. Getting a cabinet of less than 10% of the total bitmaps size isn’t unusual.

The compressed bitmap doesn’t appear to be damaged in any way and competes with a PNG file in size.
