[REBOL] Re: Compression

From: arolls:bigpond:au at: 27-Jun-2001 16:15

I noticed that the straight text compression is generally better than the binary mode compression - Try this in a directory with text files: foreach f read %./ [if not dir? f [ print [ f length? read f length? compress read f length? read/binary f length? compress read/binary f ] ]] I saw for most files the second number smaller than the fourth. I had no trouble using your method to 'do compressed scripts. I think Brett is right, and you have overwritten your original filename at some point, or the floppy data is a bit wrong. Overwriting a file is a common way to lose data. I was most happy to learn that rebol's 'rename function prevents you from overwriting a file that exists already. Anton.
