Command line utility to guess whether compressing a given file with bz2 results in space savings better than a given threshold.
Does sample bzip2 compression of approximately log(flen)*4096 picked from log(flen) locations in the file.
Usage: compressible [-v] [-t threshold] [-c fragcnt] [-m msiz] [-b ba] filename -t threshold minimum saving threshold, default 25% or 1 block -c fragcnt number of fragments -m msiz return as not compressible for smaller files -b ba "s" - be smart about blocksize number - assume this blocksize Returns: 0 if compressible, 1 not compressible, or error code
RPM packages for Fedora can be generated by rpmbuild -ta compressible-XX.tar.bz2
