Simple RLE Compression
Text file size: 9.41 Kb
New file size: 3.8 Kb (Only decompression script and data)
This kind of compression is only efficient if the file has many character repetitions. The compression
the files. After opening this file you have seen a empty document before the text was displayed. The download
has finished after the black background is visible and the following time is needed to decompress the data.
A other algorithm might have higher compression rates (LZE...), but the decompression time would increase.
I think best results (compression rate - decompression time) will be reached by using binary encoded data.
Especially if the algorithm only calculates the used characters (mostly <30 in ASCII art). May be next
Netscape needs much longer (~4x) than IE to decompress the data.
