So i have been messing with different ideas in the spirit of random data compression.. and yes it has driven me slighly mad.
I was wondering if anyone had some ideas to make use of the following senario.
you have a random say(1k) of bytes. But 1 (any) number say (42) will never appear in the data.(yes there is some overhead for providing a free value)
So you can insert this number to denote your changing something now or in the next piece/pieces of data.
Can anyone think of anything usefull for that.
My previous ideas included psudo random sequence. that when the next data item matches your pre-generated sequence was replaced with the 42. so increasing the redundancy in the data for every match.
so if anyone has any thoughts.
