Sorry to argue with you, but in Re: having fun with RE - was: Re: One Zero variants_without_repetition you said:

P.S.: the beauty of such a compression, ... and secondly, i can compress the compressed file until i reach it's minimal length (<= 26).

Which indicates that you believe that you could take any file, compress it, and then compress the compressed file, and then compress that ... until you reach a file <= 26 bytes.

And that is the very definition of 'infinite compression'. And it is impossible.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
