comment Estimate compressed file size in tar.gz
@jimbobmcgee: …which is unfortunately still wrong, as (1) similar files placed next to each other in a tar archive will help each other with compression (common case with e.g. source code), (2) directory entries and empty files also take space in the archive—variable amount depending on neighbors. That's why I wrote this utility ;-)

comment Estimate compressed file size in tar.gz
@jimbobmcgee: You're measuring size of the unpacked file, not how many bytes it needs inside the compressed archive.

comment Automatic reformatting of an email: toppost→bottompost
@MichaelKjörling: I (very) vaguely remember some people saying that they have some scripts to (probably heuristically) perform this kind of operation… that was more than several years ago though. I tried to google them again, but failed—hence this question.

comment Is it technically possible to read CD by its scan?
@sync: probably the same way you can read data “instantly” from a 1GB jpeg file. And that jpeg file has to be stored somewhere…

It's quite possible that this is what I was looking for. Thanks.
