in thread RFC: Compress::LZW
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. :)
