      The original source code was from someone (AndrComm or Sebastien?) else. I recode the whole thing, but having reference to the original. Anyway thanks, whoever who are who wrote the original code (yeahh.. all creadits to him) since i learnt some performance optimization (my original codes are tremendously slow).I did some code clean up and comments. The encode speed increased by 20%, decoded speed increased by 30%. Here's the best results that i come out with:

file : (93,040 bytes)
load : 2.56 mb/sec (n/a in original code)
save : 3.39 mb/sec (n/a in original code)
encode : 7.17 mb/sec (20% faster, original code runs at 6.05 mb/sec)
decode : 7.31 mb/sec (30% faster, original code runs at 5.61 mb/sec)

Here's the changes I've made :

1. *REWROTE* code clean up (i think it should be more readable)
2. *REWROTE* encode and decode table is created together.
3. *REWROTE* sub DECODE rewrote (should be faster).
4. *REWROTE* sub SPAN and UNSPAN now supports SpanSeparator.
5. *ADDED* More detailed co1mments for novice, not experts
6. *ADDED* some form controls, for input and output.
7. *ADDED* file loading and saving feature
8. *FIXED* encode / decode rate calculation fixed... more accurate
should be 1 sec = 1024 ticks (kernel 1044 ticks?)
and 1 mb = 1048576 bytes. (1024b x 1024b)

and some other minor corrections as well...

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
