Compression fittings use a band that goes around the end of the tubing. A female nut slides over the band. As the nut is tightened against the male portion of the connector, the band is compressed against the tube and the fitting, creating a seal. These can be used with aluminum hardline or flexable line for lower pressure applications.

The other choice is 37degree double flare stuff. It's what is commonly used for brake hardlines, and most other hardlines (gas) that use flared ends. The threaded nut portion is usually either SAE pipe or Metric pipe on later model or import stuff. Napa sells premade lengths of this type, and it's easily bent with a hand bender.
