I've got a copy of the CLOAD patent (you can get it from the web --
www.uspto.gov ; do an advanced search and search for "chatham" as an
inventor and "data synchronization apparatus" as a title). The sourcecode
has routines like "read a byte", "read a bit", etc.
I thought I'd be cute and burn a CD with a large BASIC program "Kings
and Catapults". I could CLOAD it by hooking up the coco to my CD player.
I know that's probably not real compression, but it was kind of fun, and I
haven't burned a CD in a while.. The Coco's CLOAD is actually pretty
robust. I'll bet it would work..
