All was working fine at 8:00 this morning. Now it's not. In between, I
was 40 miles away and I haven't done anything between except send email,

Summary : The zlib compression and decompression library
The zlib compression library provides in-memory compression and
decompression functions, including integrity checks of the uncompressed
data. This version of the library supports only one compression method
(deflation), but other algorithms may be added later, which will have
the same stream interface. The zlib library is used by many different
I'm in process of rebuilding from source and will see how that affects
