Xprs are usually compressed with the `gzip' tool.
The `bzip2' tool had generally worse (lower) compression ratios.
But the newer `xz' tool gives much better ratios than gzip.
I've created a small sh(-awk)-script, which was useful to do a quick analysis of my xpr collection. I'll attach it to this post for the interested audience. Here are some of my results:
total number of processed uncompressed bytes: 1.88977e+10 (about 17.6 GiB)
total number of processed sample xpr files: 560
### Compression ratio calculation and summary ###
lowest gzip ratio: 1.88181
lowest xz ratio: 2.77
highest gzip ratio: 73.3192
highest xz ratio: 125.332
average gzip ratio: 3.44946
average xz ratio: 5.80506
The xpilot replay programs do not have built-in support for xz compression.
Therefor you will have to decompress the file explicitly before playback.
On the fly (without creating a new file or modifying the xz compressed xpr) you can use:
xzcat recording.xpr.xz | bloodspilot-replay -
P.S.: Had to add a `.xp' suffix to the attachment to have it accepted by the board ...
Discussions related to other programs which are a part of BloodsPilot, e.g. xp-replay
