Provides a implementation of floating-point quantization algorithms for use in precision-preserving
compression, similar to the approach taken in the 'netCDF operators' (NCO) software package and
described in Zender (2016)
bitsqueezr is an R package providing a simple and fast (C-based) method of quantizing floating point numbers for precision-preserving compression, as implemented in the netCDF Operators (NCO) software package and described by John Caron (2014) and Charlie Zender (2016).
bitsqueezr is not in CRAN and can be installed using
The package has no external dependencies.
