Terry A Welch: High speed data compression and decompression apparatus and method. Sperry Corporation, Howard P Terry, Albert B Cooper, December 10, 1985: US04558302 (296 worldwide citation)

A data compressor compresses an input stream of data character signals by storing in a string table strings of data character signals encountered in the input stream. The compressor searches the input stream to determine the longest match to a stored string. Each stored string comprises a prefix str ...

Robert E Swenson, Merlin L Hanson, Larry J Kelson: Cache/disk subsystem with file number for recovery of cached data. Sperry Corporation, Griffin Branigan & Butler, July 1, 1986: US04598357 (130 worldwide citation)

In a cache/disk sybsystem employing the post-store technique, each file is assigned a file number. The file number is an address in a directory on a disk, this address containing pointers to the physical disk space assigned to that file. During normal operation of the subsystem a device number and a ...
