Dynamic Adaptive Compression Tool

DACT started out as an idea for a science fair project on [Arbitrary Data Compression] (which we later decided was impossible). While working on that project, I thought about compressing different types of files with different algorithms (basing the algorithm used on the type of file), but using just 1 algorithm for the entire file. But then I thought about splitting the file into blocks and compressing each block with whatever algorithm works best for it. And thus DACT was born.

Since then, DACT has had many features added to it including:
