I'm looking foward to developing a study on table compression techniques.

When browsing the Web, I haven't found any recent articles (at least from
the last decade).

Does anyone have a clue as where as to begin?
[Since computer memories have gotten so big, does anyone care about
table compression any more? When your whole compiler had to fit into
64K, compressing a few K out of the table was a big deal. But now, a
typical Windows program has a megabyte of unused libraries that aren't
work stripping out, so why waste time with the tables? Well, unless
you're squeezing it into an embedded chip, but even they have a lot
more memory than they used to. -John]
