Fast access to files of integers is crucial for the efficient resolution of queries to databases. Integers are the basis of indexes used to resolve queries, for example, in large internet search systems and numeric data forms a large part of most databases. Disk access costs can be reduced by compression, if the cost of retrieving a compressed representation from disk and the CPU cost of decoding such a representation is less than that of retrieving uncompressed data.
