Update folks: I have been working on a new revision of the program which will speed up the processing tremendously. Casual use of the program on files which weren't too terribly large wasn't too bad to deal with. But now... I have been able to use multi byte burst transfers in Action! and get this thing on steroids! Thanks to drac030 for offering the feedback.
I actually have the new code working just great, but since I am going to issue a new version, I though I might take the opportunity to add a little something extra that I had been thinking about before. And that is informing the user what the size of the input file is, so that the ongoing progress indications are just that much more meaningful. We'll see how that goes. Should be doable, but remember I'm not just writing code similar to a bunch I have written before. A lot of the time is spent figuring out why things aren't working right, rather than just organizing thoughts and laying down the code super quick.
Anyway, be watching soon for a new version. It may or may not have the size info, but it will be a FAST version of the program.
