This paper addresses a number of discrepancies in the existing accounts: important aspects of the refractory ward and 'rumpus room' were underestimated; all the 'rumpus room' patients were not discharged and readmitted as repeatedly stated; his(More)
Previous object code compression schemes have employed static and semiadaptive compression algorithms to reduce the size of instruction memory in embedded systems. The suggestion by a number of researchers that adaptive compression techniques are unlikely to yield satisfactory results for code compression has resulted in virtually no investigation of their(More)
In this paper we introduce an adaptive technique for compressing small quantities of text which are organized as a rooted directed graph. We impose a constraint on the technique such that data encountered during a traversal of any valid path through the graph must be recoverable without requiring the expansion of data that is not on the path in question.(More)
