    Smile RZM compressor

    Just started a thread about this amazing compressor.

    For info, I've found kind of a bug in RZM v0.07h: If you try to extract not a RZM packed file, say MPTRACK.EXE, RZM will crash. RZM by default decompresses if first parameter not "c", so if you accidentally type:
    rzm e mptrack.exe mptrack.rzm
    ->
    Code:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     RZM 0.07h (Apr 24 2008) - Copyright (c) 2008 by Christian Martelock
     Contact: christian.martelock@web.de - TEST version - May contain bugs...
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Decoding 'mptrack.exe' (using 130M memory)
    
    60kb -> 65405kb (66974912b, 108985.59%)
    And RZM crashes producing a standard crash window - "Send Error Report"/"Don't Send".

    Thanks for the heads-up, Ilia.

    I know about this 'bug' - btw., Slug behaves in the same way. If people really want this fixed, then please just drop me a mail. If there are enough requests, I'll fix it. But I actually think, that the few people that use RZM/Slug/... are able to type correctly. Nonetheless, I admit, that the CLI should be more robust to input errors. I'll keep that in mind for the future.

    P.S.: Btw., you may want to correct BALZ's decompression-behavior, too. It happily decompresses every file I throw at it.

    Yep, since it has no file header stuff and decoder easily can decompress anything without crashes. Well, for demo encoder such behaviour is OK I guess.
