Description of the dmc-5M method

Version 0.0.0, 1993.

This program implements Dynamic Markov Compression (DMC) as described in Data Compression using Dynamic Markov Modelling by Gordon Cormack and Nigel Horspool (in Computer Journal 30:6, December 1987)

Our tests used DMC with a memory usage of 5MB (dmc-5M) and 50MB (dmc-50M).
