Subj:   Re: Question on compression
 
From:   Neil Raden

This is not at all unusual. Compression is useful in storage, but devilishly difficult in processing. It simply takes too many cycles in processing to unravel it over and over again, as opposed to just once when reading it in.

I've never seen a program actually process compressed data in memory reliably. If TD is going to pull this off in V2R6, I'd love to hear what their approach will be.
