ZipTest is a utility for use with PC-Zipper to determine the
optimum speed for your system. The utility calls each procedure,
executes a routine, times it, and then records the results. Upon
completion, ZipTest checks to find which procedure resulted in a
negligible increase in processor speed.
Optimum system performance results at the "crest" of the curve.
See the following graph example:
B | _|_ *
E | * |
C | *
M | *
K | *
A B ..... K W
In this example, ZipTest would recommend command line parameter
"K" for use with PC-Zipper.
Use of a higher parameter will not significantly increase your
system speed and might cause errors if you have weak or defective
memory chips. If the use of ZipTest results in a system error
before reaching completion, you probably have at least one
defective memory chip. Make note of the maximum speed reached and
use PC-Zipper with a command line parameter several levels lower.
