Same here, but I guess some people don't appreciate well meant thank you words.

Kind regards,

Eric

I'd just like to add a couple of pts:

1. both gzip and bzip2 have a compression 'range' value from 1-9 that you can specify. 1= quick but low compression -> 9 = slow but good compression. The classic speed vs efficiency trade-off.
2. binary files also don't compress well...

Don't worry you guys are always appreciated whether or not we're pulling our hair out, or looking for a lifeline.

I need to setup a data-base to retain all the useful information I receive here.
