@Richard: ehrmm..thanks? for detailed description, of course I know what a cruncher is, my question was referring to what it does to make the final compression result worse as the original cruel but that you answered too (no pass 2) 8)

I am surprised to see that somehow this one found its way to CSDb. :-) (I had totally forgetten about it.)

Of course, one needs to have some extra intelligence to see that this is not about improving compression efficiency, but about improving overall operation speed (i.e. loading/saving speed and actual crunching speed, albeit in a disadvantageous manner.)

Definitely not needed in 2007, but back then I needed this. :-)

@ Krill: both PuCrunch (1997) and Exomizer (2005) did not exist at the time (1994) ;-)

That is, if you really have that oldschool spirit to compress stuff on the C64 itself, instead of using modern and better compressors like PuCrunch or Exomizer.

@Rough. This tool compresses your programs but you did not have to wait too long for the 2-pass mode to finish. Cruel Cruncher was slower, but compressed more. This tool is good for those who lack patience in crunching a game or something :)
