Hello Vernon,
 
Like everyone using dcc, my thanks for your time and efforts.
 
I'm sure you've already considered this, but can I suggest using gzip to
compress the source archives vs. compress?  The savings are pretty
substantial - using compress increases your source file size by about 52%.
 
Compress:  1,307,125
Gzip:             858,653
--------------------------------
Difference :     448,472
 
Anyway, just a thought,
Mike
