in reply to Re^9: Data compression by 50% + : is it possible?in thread Data compression by 50% + : is it possible?
That's for one run of 100 lines.
For much larger runs it is around 62.8%
It only saved something like 1% of the average code length, which seems to indicate that the code is already very close to the optimal entropy limit.
See German-WP for theoretical background.
