    Crinkler

    I added a new section to my book. http://mattmahoney.net/dc/dce.html#Section_438

    I haven't tried Crinkler but I did think the description was interesting. It is essentially PAQ1 with sparse models, static weights tuned by the compressor, and a E8E9 filter all packed into 210-220 bytes of x86 code. It is for compressing self-extracting demos (programs under 4 KB).

    I linked to a longer description, but the short version should be sufficient for those familiar with compression.

    As old as this thread is, I believe it is the correct place to put the notification that the popular demoscene executable compressor (compressing linker), Crinkler, has been made open-source: https://github.com/runestubbe/Crinkler

    I acknowledge that it's been several weeks and that Dresdenboy already posted about Crinkler's new status and linked to its Github repository in the '(Extremely) tiny decompressors' thread.

    Somewhat related: There is another, less known compressor for 1K/4K intros called oneKpaq (developed for Mac with clang compiler, but I could get it running on Win with some changes, at least providing compressed sizes), with a 128-165 byte decompressor code (not including executable file format headers, which are included in the Crinkler decompressor). Here's the repository: https://github.com/temisu/oneKpaq
