    Lossless compressor and decompressor for numerical data using quantiles

    Right, please don't try to use it for general files. It looks like zpaq is kinda hard to set up except on windows, so I'm probably not going to, but I encourage you to try it out! There's an example you can use to generate a bunch of random numerical distributions, outputting binary files, .qco, and other formats.
