Well, uh, I also did a Lempel-Ziv encoder/decoder pair,
but I discovered that it only worked with some processors only

many web sites), it's quite easy.
And please, don't assume code is functionnal:
test it, read it, try to understand how it works.
Don't just believe what those evil obfuscators say. :-)

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
