Subject Re: Searching compressed text using CompressionTools

Are you saying that by using compression your index size goes up by a
factor of more than 1024?  From c10 kilobytes to 12 megabytes?

Compressing small fields can cause the index to get bigger rather than
smaller but obviously not by that much.
