Hi! I have a dilemma/problem at my workspace, and I would like to ask some help to solve it!
Before some month, we had and we used a syncronisation cloud server and we could upload the codes on the fly, without any extra work : at the moment, when we saved the modification/new version, the folder started to be syncronisated and later we could take the current codes wherever we ha a PC and Net. This was very good for me too, because e.g. if my code had some very irritative bug, but I had to finish the code for a close deadline, I could download the code after work at home, and peruse and correct the code thru the night.
We build our technical product's software on Atmel AT-Mega2560 mikroprocessors (Arduino), so we code everything in C. (yet, we don't have any assembly coder)
But now, we moved to a distant land in the country, to continue our developments in bigger workshops. (we are an agri-technical company in hungary, mainly building huge grain storage and drying systems, but we also try to develop a comprehensive digital automatization for these.)
While we moved to the countryside, we got somewhere very far from the urban places. This means, that we could only get a very-very slow internet connection by our ISP. It is 2Mbit in all, and it is divided between more than 300 worker. Therefore my colleagues are reluctant to syncronise their work, to save bandwidth for other office workers.
We talked a bit about, that we would try our syncronisation routine, if we could minimize our project files drastically by some offline method - e.g. fifth of the size. But, it would be really good, if there would be a ready software, what compress C source codes the best - BUT in a LOSSLESSLY form (to hold the structure/wrapping). (We write our comments in english in the code, and usually it is don't so much)
So, are there any effective pure C code compressor exist?
Thanks in advanced!
