  abstract =     "The importance of digital data compression in the
                 future media arena cannot be overestimated. A novel
                 approach to data compression is built on Genetic
                 Programming. This technique has been referred to as
                 {"}programmatic compression{"}. In this paper we apply
                 a variant of programmatic compression to the
                 compression of bitmap images and sampled digital sound.
                 The work presented here constitutes the first
                 successful result of genetic programming applied to
                 compression of real full size images and sound. A
                 compiling genetic programming system is used for
                 efficiency reasons. Different related issues are
                 discussed, such as the handling of very large fitness
                 case sets.",
