COMPRESSION RATIOThere are two popular ways of representing a compression ratio as a percentage; either as the size of the input divided by the size of the output (times 100), or as 100% minus the aforementioned ratio. LZX uses the former method, since it is more intuitive; if a file has a compression ratio of 35%, then it was compressed to 35% of its original size. A program which didn't compress at all will have a compression ratio of 100%. Note that programs such as LZ and LhA use the second type of ratio, so a file which compressed to 35% of its original size would be represented by a compression ratio of 65%.
