Compression of Apps

Before anyone mouths off that I need to search, I did. I was wondering what compression mode John uses when using 7-Zip to make a self-extracting paf.exe file. I understand that the paf part is a hack. Thanks.

I get a picture, but I mean the actual variables and compression method that John uses. Thanks for the help anyway.

LZMA, dude!

LZMA, 24MB of memory. It's right there. The compression level was probably Ultra.

Nope

It is was really fun. The authors get everyone involved.
Side-note: John, how come Drupal uses the proper emphasis elements, but not the proper strikethrough stuff (<del>, <ins>)?
