Please, please don't publish this until it handles .Z files correctly. That's the whole point to having this library (from my perspective).

    I understand your perspective, but there isn't much more to do to get it throwing out .Z's right and left. This is open-source, the idea is that someone else can look at my code and contribute. If someone doesn't heed the version number, the alpha status on CPAN, or the noted incompatibility with .Z files; aren't they asking for trouble? Development, man, development. Sure, someone CAN use the module for some nefarious perpose right now, but why do that when it will get better?

    Anyway, I'm looking into the compress format. Lots to get sorted out though. It will take a little tweaking for the adaptive blocking to work as well as compress.

    I have noted your desire for a compress-compatible format; trust me, I'm working. :)

[vrk]: Hope he gets better soon.
[Discipulus]: hdb sorry i profit; is known that a prime number is never a figurate one nor the sumattion of two adjacent figurates of the same order? like 3th triangular+3th tetrahedric
[Discipulus]: if known where i can read about the matter?
[choroba]: he's not really sick, we just got nobody to look after him today
[Discipulus]: create an account for him; we are funny baby sitters ;=) come here child, want to listen the typeglob tale?
[vrk]: choroba Oh, that's good.
[vrk]: Discipulus I don't know much about prime numbers, but wouldn't that kind of an answer be in a graduate-level number theory book?
[Discipulus]: my 8 yo daughter has two weeks of sleep disturbs.. we are gonna be crazy..
