Hi all. I am trying to implement this alogrithm to uncompress a compressed file I made...
/*
# Get one byte, put it to the output file, and now it's the 'last' byte.
# Loop
# Get one byte
# Is the current byte equal to last?
# Yes
* Now get another byte, this is 'counter'
* Put current byte in the output file
* Copy 'counter' times the 'last' byte to the output file
* Put last copied byte in 'last' (or leave it alone)
* Repeat.
# No
* Put current byte to the output file
* Now 'last' is the current byte
* Repeat
*/

This is the code I used for it...



And the loop never finishes and the pixelCount gets no way near the actual amount of pixels the program should be reading in. Can anyone see where I have went wrong. Thanks
