  crunch 1. vi. To process, usually in a time-consuming or complicated
     way. Connotes an essentially trivial operation that is nonetheless
     painful to perform. The pain may be due to the triviality's being
     embedded in a loop from 1 to 1,000,000,000. "FORTRAN programs do mostly
     number-crunching." 2. vt. To reduce the size of a file by a
     complicated scheme that produces bit configurations completely unrelated
     to the original data, such as by a Huffman code. (The file ends up
     looking something like a paper document would if somebody crunched the
     paper into a wad.) Since such compression usually takes more
     computations than simpler methods such as run-length encoding, the term
     is doubly appropriate. (This meaning is usually used in the construction
     `file crunch(ing)' to distinguish it from number-crunching.) See
     compress. 3. n. The character `#'. Used at XEROX and CMU, among other
     {ASCII">places. See {ASCII. 4. vt. To squeeze program source into a
     minimum-size representation that will still compile or execute. The term
     came into being specifically for a famous program on the BBC micro that
     crunched BASIC source in order to make it run more quickly (it was a
     wholly interpretive BASIC, so the number of characters mattered).
     Obfuscated C Contest entries are often crunched; see the first example
     under that entry.

  crunch
       
          1.  To process, usually in a time-consuming or
          complicated way.  Connotes an essentially trivial operation
          that is nonetheless painful to perform.  The pain may be due

          crunching."
       
          2.  To reduce the size of a file without losing
          information by a complicated scheme that produces bit
          configurations completely unrelated to the original data, such
          as by a Huffman code.  Since such compression usually
          takes more computations than simpler methods such as

          meaning is usually used in the construction "file crunching"
          to distinguish it from number crunching.)  Use of crunch
          itself in this sense is rare among Unix hackers.
       
          3. The hash character.  Used at XEROX and CMU, among
          other places.
       
          4. To squeeze program source to the minimum size that will
          still compile or execute.  The term came from a BBC
          Microcomputer program that crunched BBC BASIC source in
          order to make it run more quickly (apart from storing
          keywords as byte codes, the language was wholly interpreted,
          so the number of characters mattered).  Obfuscated C Contest
          entries are often crunched; see the first example under that
          entry.
