Title (De)Compressor
Description A (rather fast) program I wrote in BASIC which allows you to (de)compress a string. In a best-case situation (a string containing the 255th ASCII character, ΓΏ, repeatedly - and nothing else), the compression is enormous - 32 bytes compress down to 7, 128 bytes compress down to 10, etc. However, with other situations, the compression will vary. For example, the string "moogle equals moogle squared divided by moogle times moogle over moogle to the zero times moogle" (96 bytes) compresses down to 82 bytes. While this seems small, it is actually a size reduction of 14.583% - not bad for a very simple compression algorithm. Read the 'readme' file for MUCH more detail.
