wow this thing is shit, I have a 61.1GB file and this thing only compressed it to 58.3GB and it took forever, I waited that long for this shitty compression?
Not everything can be significantly compressed lad. You won't be able to compress an H264 video as much as a TIFF image file. This is why FLAC blows. You're probably trying to compress something that has already been partially compressed.
I've ran into the same problem and using another program like winrar won't do jack shit.
KGB Archiver is the compression tool with unbelievable high compression rate. It surpasses even such efficient compression tool like 7zip and UHARC in terms of the abilities.
is this true though?
On average, the index to the digit where a sequence starts will have roughly the same amount of digits as said sequence, so you gain absolutely nothing, and now have to deal with bignums. What a gain.
lrzip was made exactly for this kind of thing. It can also compress directories with TAR wrapper.
