Humanzip

humanzip is a compression program that operates on text files. Unlike most compression algorithms, its output is human readable. Indeed, it is explicitly meant to be read by humans and might even be easier to read than the original. humanzip compresses files by looking for common strings of words and replacing them with single symbols. The idea is to reduce the screen and print size of documents. humanzip does not explicitly try to reduce the size of the file as measured in bytes, although this usually happens incidentally.
