I've decided to run a contest, due to my abundance of free time.
Criteria: (on a 10 point scale for each one)
Elegance - how well written your code is
Efficiency - how fast and lean your code is
Flexibility - how many types of data your code can compress; and from how many sources
Compression - how much your program compresses the file
There will be a few files this will be tested on. Each file will be of a different type. (Expect at least one text file and one program executable).
Deadline: Tuesday, July 15, by the end of the day (and probably a few hours afterwards)
Note: Any program which attempts to hide data in a secret place will be disqualified.
To enter: Let me know somehow. Either reply to this thread, send me a PM, or send me an e-mail (at email@example.com). Or you can just send in your entry with your name and e-mail address.
To submit a program: Send the file to my e-mail address, firstname.lastname@example.org . Make sure you tell me your cprog name so I can identify
Note: The cprog website is now updated.
