Could you reexplain this? Also does anyone know how other compression works? This is kinda interesting.

In case anyone cares, here's how .rar (I think it is .rar, but it may be something else) works:
It works by finding prhases and compressing them. For example, the phrase "The happy dog jumps over the happy cat and the dog." It would replace "the happy" with one character/phrase, dog with another, and so on. So it gets english very small, but has lesser effect on binaries.
It is extremely elegent, though.
