Topic: How to drop zlib compressed data into PDF

Thanks to some help from this forum, I've been able to put together a simple PDF writer.
My last step is to take a block of text, compress it using zlib and put that in the PDF instead of plain text.
To keep it simple, I am trying to replace one text object with a zlib compressed ojbect. The compression itself seems to be working ok. I compressed/decompressed/compared to verify this.
When I drop the compressed block into the doc, PDF reports "An unrecognized token " was found".
This is the text that was in the working object:
/F2 12 Tf
1 0 0 1 50 692 Tm
1 0 0 1 150 692 Tm
1 0 0 1 250 692 Tm
1 0 0 1 400 692 Tm
When compressed with default compression, it looks like this:
I am setting it up in the PDF like this:
8 0 obj
9 0 obj
and get the error I mentioned. I removed the length object and put /Length 122 in the /Filter line and this produced the same error.
Thanks for any help.
