And now for something completely new:
packLZH is based on packHUF and adds the well known LZ77 algorithm to the mix. Compression ratios highly depend on file content. In most cases, they should be a little worse than those reached by packARI, but at faster compression speeds and much faster decompression speeds.
This has basically not been tested at all, so proceed at your own risk.
A minor update to one of my lesser known compression tools.
- source code cleanup and beautification
- file name creation bug fixed
Remember that this only does some basic huffman coding and is intended as a base for your own projects rather than for being used on it’s own.
Alright, I guess this fixes all remaining known problems:
- improved/fixed temp file handling in Linux
- fixed some more possible file name creation bugs
Some testing is still needed – that’s why this is not called final :-).
Just a very minor update:
I did some source code optimizations and also fixed some possible (although, in reality: almost impossible) memory leaks. Thanks go to Roger Sibert for recommending CPPcheck, which enabled me to do so.
And here’s the first actual software update for this site:
- improved Linux compilation script (actually working now)
- added Linux 32bit executable (‘packARC.lxe’)
- updated all compression libraries to their newest versions
- fixed some Linux specific stuff
- fixed a bug in SFX file name creation
This may or may not fix the problems earlier encountered with Matt Mahoney’s 10GB corpus. For more info you may also take a look at the encode.ru thread.
The upload limit was increased thanks to the amazing folks at encode.ru. This finally enabled me to properly upload all my stuff to this place, meaning that this is now complete contentwise. I still intend to do some fine tuning and maybe I’ll find some other interesting stuff to upload to this place.
I’ve added even more stuff for you and reorganized some things. There’s still trouble with uploading larger files and I still can’t get that contact form to work. So, this is still only almost complete contentwise.
Well, look at that. This place is now, regarding content, almost complete. There’s still some stuff that needs work, and some files could not yet be uploaded due to size restrictions. More later.
Well, seems like the contact form does not work yet. I’ll get to this tomorrow.
A list of useful links and the contact form is online. If I did forget something, now you at least know how to contact me ;-).
