Heatshrink question

  • I see that you've added heatshrink compression to Espruino and that the Flash module is setup to use it, but I'm not sure if that is active at the moment as I don't see the macro USE_HEATSHRINK being set anywhere.

    Is it possible, and would it make sense, to have heatshrink jswrap-ed so that we could use it when playing with strings and typed arrays in javaScript?

  • I'm pretty sure it is active - it's set in the Makefile usually, as on some boards with very little RAM you don't save enough memory with the compression to make it worthwhile.

    Yes, I'd wondered about exposing it. IMO it's not quite as exciting as if I could have use zlib or something that compressed in a 'common' format though.
