I got bored waiting for my compiler here to finish its slavish work.
So I compared the size of the planet.osm for some packers I found on my
machine here...


AND THE WINNER IIIIISSSSS

7zip.


$ ls -la | cut -c 34-41,55-
 9089399 planet-fixed.osm.7z
11552303 planet-fixed.osm.bz2
14212100 planet-fixed.osm.gz
13046603 planet-fixed.osm.rar
16669803 planet-fixed.osm.z


No surprise here. ;)

Ciao, Imi.
