Exomizer is a program that compresses files in a way that tries to be as
efficient as possible but still allows them to be decompressed in environments
where CPU speed and RAM are limited. For some popular 8-bit computers using 6502
compatible CPUs it can also generate executable files that decompress themselves
in memory when run.

The exomizer program itself is a console application written in ANSI-C.

Exomizer operates in two major modes. It has a raw mode that compresses plain
files and produces plain files. This mode is used by the raw subcommand. All
other subcommands use the second mode. It requires all source files to be
targeted to be decrunched at specific addresses in the 16-bit address space of
the target computer. In this mode, no file can be larger than 64kB since all
data must be addressable using 16-bits. The targeted mode has the following

It reads plain or .prg files to any given address.

It can produce stand-alone self-decrunching files for the following targets:

Commodore VIC20, C64, C16/plus4, C128 and PET 4032
Atari 400/800 XL/XE
Apple ][+ and //e
Oric-1 and Oric Atmos
BBC Micro B

It can produce files for both "in memory" and "from disk" decrunching.

It handles RLE-sequences well, no packer is necessary.

It is able to link/combine more than one source file into the same crunched
target file.

Included in the downloadable zip file are the source code and a precompiled
binary for AmigaOS4 (originally it was for Win32). It also includes a makefile
for Gnu make and gcc so it should be easy to build on any system where these
tools are available.

Any suggestions, comments and/or bug reports can be sent to me:
magli143()gmail.com, the author.

AmigaOS4 changes:

 -- build latest 3.0.2 version (2019-01-05)
 -- Added stack cookie , so exobasic didn't crash when run
 -- fixed makefiles
