The Art of Lossless Data Compression vol. 25t

Here are the results of tests performed in August 2002 to compare lossless compression of "plain" texts by all known good enough programs developed for such purpose, including UHArc, PPMd, Bzip2, RAR, ACE and 7-zip. See Archive Comparison Test by J.Gilchrist for more details: http://compression.ca If anybody wants to start or continue such tests, or can suggest some other sets of texts, or other compression programs, (not sources or algorithm descriptions, executable programs only) or knows we have missed something important, (some new fantastic technology, an algorithm or even a program capable of lossless compression of up to 1000:1 etc.) please let us know immediately: artest@inbox.ru Thank you!

(compressed_size)/3600 Average Users' score is calculated by adding (compress_time/10)+ extract_time + time it would take to transfer the compressed file over a 28,800bps network. Compression time is divided by 10 here, because more than 90% of people would never compress anything during their life (with compression programs), but they use compressed data almost _every_ time they use computers and/or Internet. That's why compression time is not so actual for them.
