Chile is a compression program based on Burrows-Wheeler Transform...


At the beginning it was just for fun, but after some research and some "googling" over the Internet I came up with many new ideas. Soon after, my program became comparable to bzip2 and WinACE. The execution time can be improved very much since the algorithm I used to make the transform is not one of the best known.

The compressor is featured in the BWT comparison.
