Installation
------------

You'll need to install the XPK package first to use this library. The
XPK package should be available on most Bulletin Board Systems, so try to
get it there.

If you already have the XPK package installed, add this library to
your system simply by copying the xpkRAKE.library to your LIBS:Compressors/
directory. The library can be found in xpkRAKE_68000/ or if you have a 68020
(or greater) processor, take the library placed in xpkRAKE_68020/.



Description
-----------

RAKE is an XPK packer sublibrary which implements a highly optimized
form of the popular LZ77 compression algorithm. It uses static huffman
coding for the 'len' and a three-step coding for the 'offset'
information. The major feature of this packer is the highly optimized
algorithm for tracking down redundant data.

RAKE supports four modes at compression (see below).
- Scanner & Coder together fit in 68020 instruction cache
- Hashbuffer-size will be reduced downto 0.5Kb, if memory is short


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: There is no need to repack files packed with RAKE V1.0 - V1.6
(68000 or 68020 version), because RAKE V1.7 is totally compatible
with older versions and vice versa, it just works faster.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Statistics
----------

Following is a table briefly listing some statistics for RAKE. They
were generated by xBench on an A3000/25 with 2+8 MB Mem, using the
AmigaVision executable as data (standard xpk benchmark configuration).
Note that memory needs don't include xpkmaster.library's buffers.
