Scifer is a data compression and archiving application using a new data compression logic based on Universal Common Logic
The algorithms of Scifer are based on UCL continous entropy , where any number of uniqueness of algorithms can be unified under the UCL Laws.The BETA version constitutes a few fundamental algorithms.
Features of the Scifer algorithm
*Theoretically data can be continously compressed, however advanced research and contributions have to be made to UCL, a relatively new theory.
*The BETA version focuses more on complex, pattern-less and randomized data. Textual and more literal data which are more compressible using larger dictionary based schemes and advanced frequency analyzed outputs are not implemented in this version.
*Consumes the least memory resources compared to any other powerful compression algorithms.
*Data can be processed in a buffer-less stream also, with zero information of the previously processed data (no sliding window, no frequency counts, no Huffman or any other frequency based analysis). This can be implemented in hardware or software for real-time compression and decompression of data streams of any type.
*Unique archive structure which allows files and data to be directly accessed without extracting.
*File addition or removal is not allowed. Ideal for archived file distributions.
*The external header makes it possible to view the information of files in the archive in any application like browsers, office automation documents or XML processing viewers without mobilising the large binary data of the archive. Example: show the archive contents in any number of websites while the actual binary archive is present in one location only
