Release id #154516 : Subsizer 0.5

Better to take this to the forum.

After adding some printf() statements to track the file open failure with "some demo.prg", the quoting of arguments works, but only sometimes. Which usually indicates a deeper problem somewhere.

Running through valgrind I get same nasty messages:

I tried using --track-origins=yes, but that completely borked my system, that filled my memory and my swap space and made my system completely unresponsive, had to kill valgrind via a tty.


Is there bug a tracker somewhere for this?

There are some harmless warnings with it:

update: Subsizer 0.5.1
subsizer 0.5.1, 2017-03-21
  - added LICENSE.txt
  - give error if no end marker can be found.
  - got rid of a few warnings as reported by soci.
  - fixed issue with uninitialized memory as reported by compyx.
  - added decruncher source due to popular demand.  well, only bitbreaker. :)
    (caution: encoding may change between versions)

Has anyone tested this on the Pearl for Pigs corpus?

I'm writing a benchmarks page at codebase ( http://www.codebase64.org/doku.php?id=base:compression_benchmar.. ), and would be interesting to see where Subsizer fits in the big picture

I'll add a scatter plot soonish.

No decruncher speeds as there is no standalone decruncher yet.

Curious question: are we measuring those in cycles without badlines?

Thanks! Yes, time in cycles with neither badlines nor interrupts, either by using CIA or breakpoints+cyclecounter in VICE.

Also, wow - those are tiny!

Even smaller than exomizer. I really need to time those two...

I wanted to replicate some of the results as a baseline but can't really get the same values.

This is what I get for lzwvl-f:
        name       size          left    cycles  frm  spd     cons
        pfp1.bin:  4529 (18)     41.14%  234334 11.9 45.2k/s 51.7c/b
        pfp2.bin:  3532 (14)     71.02%  127774 6.5  37.4k/s 36.2c/b
        pfp3.bin:  2991 (12)     75.74%  95420  4.9  39.8k/s 31.9c/b
        pfp4.bin:  4242 (17)     60.46%  153715 7.8  43.9k/s 36.2c/b
        pfp5.bin:  25781 (102)   74.17%  730916 37.2 45.8k/s 28.4c/b
        pfp6.bin:  11283 (45)    35.70%  644479 32.8 47.2k/s 57.1c/b
        pfp7.bin:  12108 (48)    59.38%  466960 23.8 42.0k/s 38.6c/b
        pfp8.bin:  4179 (17)     73.15%  142155 7.2  38.7k/s 34.0c/b
        pfp9.bin:  6914 (28)     77.17%  226119 11.5 38.1k/s 32.7c/b
The cycle count is slightly off, presumably due to obscure timing model errors in unp64 which I'm using to emulate the depacker. I verified the timing in vice for a few and the error for those was about 1% or so.

Note especially the difference between pfp6.bin and pfp7.bin.

The last value is cycles per byte _consumed_ as in the tables. Is this really a useful measure?
