The continuous growth of mobile, desktop and wired and wireless digital communication technologies has made the extensive use of the text data unavoidable. The basic characteristics of text data like transmission rate, bandwidth, redundancy, bulk capacity and co-relation among text data makes basic compression algorithms mandatory. The research exploration in the field of text data compression is huge. In this paper, the authors investigate the performance evolution of basic compression algorithms on text data. They are adopting RLE (Lossless) compression and its modified version of algorithm, named K-RLE (Lossy).
