Re: InstantDB: compressing data


Dave

Couple of possibles, bit related to text storage. All char and varchar
columns in IDB reserve fixed length entries for unicode strings. You could
either use the SMALLCHAR type to get revert to 1 byte chars, or the TEXT
type to get variable length unicode strings. Unfortunately, the best
combination - 1 byte variable length strings, doesn't seem to be an option
right now.

Regards

Pete
