[REBOL] Re: Compression

From: ptretter:norcom2000 at: 17-Apr-2001 12:27

I can understand that its hard to believe but I struggled with this along time. I couldnt sleep at times. I tried talking to math professionals looking for an answer but couldnt get one. Slowely, I started to understand what couldnt be done and scrapped it immediately. I also struggled with number size and had to find alternatives. Finally, I found the solution which is very unique compared to current compression methods. That was the hardest part. Now the next pieces will be easy. To create the software to perform the calculations. Once I get that piece in place then I can move much more agressively with a prototype.

you, as you may have guessed. If I did not know you, I would be be laughing at you. Bypassing argument of whether or not you are correct, how far have you gotten? What sort of time does it to compress something? Generally speaking, how does it work?

floppy disk. Or take a Gigabyte worth of data and compress it to under 400bytes. I purchased /View/Pro and will most likely purchase runtime licenses once they are available for /View and begin distribution of NEW compression software depending on the licensing terms available. Imagine with 400 byes of compressed data (representing a gig or more) what this could mean to handheld devices like portable mp3 players or digital cameras. The capablity to store your entire mp3 collection in a portable device. I know your interested but you will have to wait a bit longer. Thanks to the guys in the IRC REBOL channel on EFNET for your help and cooperation (you know who you are).
