Compression formula
Posted:
Dec 11, 2003 2:33 PM


Hello,
Is there an arithmetic compression formula or algorithm that can be used to store a numeric 64bit or numeric 32bit quantity in a compressed format into a numeric 16bit quantity?
Then, when needed, decompress back into a 32bit or 64bit quantity?
Is this a totally ridiculous request?? :) :)
Thanks,
Guru
