several others. A sample Batch programs to run them
are contained in the file.
The first one is based as closely as possible on the one used in the original BZIP. Namely that for a small number of repeats in the middle of a file "aaa..
the file "aa1a1b" is uncompressed by UNRLE and then compressed by RLE
the file "aa3b" comes back so COMPRESS( UNCOMPRESS( X)) != X so it sucks.
when you try UNRLEU followed by RLEU you get the file you started with back. If one can find nonempty files that my code does not have this property then mine would fail. If anyone finds such a failure with my code please let me know.
