Please I want some help in making this small program :
the program looks for 3 or more repeated similar letters and replaces them with two characters , the first is the letter itself ( value ) , and the second character is the number of times it repeated ( count ).
Converted to :
( less than three repeats , will be ignored, because when converted , it will contain 2 characters for the count and value , so , no difference in size for the two letter repeats )
it's a means for compressing text files ( r.l.e )
I want to know how to make a windows application that asks the user to browse for the file , and then convert it using the technique i mentioned .
asks him for a compressed file and then restores it back to the original version...
ANY help is appreciated ...
