Abbrevia is a compression toolkit for Embarcadero Delphi, C++ Builder, and Kylix and FreePascal. It supports PKZip, Microsoft CAB, tar, gzip, bzip2 and zlib compression formats, and the creation of self-extracting executables. It includes several visual components that simplify displaying zip files.
Abbrevia 5.0 adds a number of new features and support for more platforms:
This is a source-only release. It includes design-time and run-time packages for Delphi 6 through Delphi XE2, C++Builder 2009 through XE2, and Kylix 3. FreePascal is supported, but runtime/design time packages are not included. The LZMA, PPMd, and WavPack algorithms are only supported on Delphi/ C++Builder for Windows (32 and 64-bit).
Abbrevia includes the following packages:
$LIBSUFFIX is used, so each .bpl/.bpi will have a version number after it
corresponding to the compiler version (e.g. 160 for Delphi XE2).
The Kylix 3
AbbreviaCLX package includes all of the non-visual runtime
units, and the
Abbrevia package is not included separately.
