[REBOL] Rebol and a new compression system.
From: tbrownell:shaw:ca at: 4-Mar-2002 12:13
In my endless study of language using Rebol tools, I've devised a way to compress correspondence
60% more than the most advanced method currently available.
This works only for communication using standard english words, such as this e-mail,
or an encyclopedia article etc. If the communication is full of non-sensical strings,
such as enbased, it will actually increase the size of the document by 3.
For example, this e-mail is approx 607 bytes raw.. when compressed with winzip is 355
bytes and when compressed using the system is 213 bytes. (If a better compression system
than winzip is used, then the 213 would be even smaller.)
I know the Rebol gang is a techno savvy bunch...question is, is there any practical use
for such a system?
