How do I check the history size of a binary? IOW, how to I check the size of the sum of all the delta-compressions and root blob of a binary? That way I can sample different binary types to get a symptomatic idea of how well they are delta compressing. I suspect that compiled binaries will compress well (efficient history) and graphics files may not compress well (large history). v/r, neal -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
