You couldn't have been more understanding :)
that the shortest and the code the strikes right in the dot.
though i feel extremly sad to agree with ohcamacj and admit my failure that i won't live long enough to see it finish with that much ones and zeroes.
originally i was trying to make an de/coder that reads some bytes from a file, for every 26 bytes (at least) counts how many zeroes and one are there and the MD5 of the original binary string( of 26*8 bits) and writes it to a new file in the format of (for every previouse 26 bytes) "$ones,$zeroes,MD5x16\n"
then when it should decode the new file, it reads every string, checks for all the possibilities of strings containing these numbers of 1's and 0's checking their MD5 comparing it to the read one, if it fits it writes the original file by printing the ord('B8', $every_8_ones_or_zeroes_after_split) .
but now i understand i'll wait forever to decode few bytes.
P.S.: the beauty of such a compression, is first that it's a some sort of logic interpretation of almost random strings( of 1/0), and secondly, i can compress the compressed file until i reach it's minimal length (<= 26).
