Compressing String for Printingby neversaint (Deacon)
|on Dec 25, 2008 at 15:37 UTC||Need Help??|
neversaint has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
What's the Perl's way to compress the string into smaller 2~3 char/digit length.
In particular I want to compress string of length >=30 characters, e.g.
The reason I want to do that is because, there are millions of such string I want to print out (after some processing). And I need to save disk space.
