Crunch headers?
« on: July 09, 2017, 07:02:44 »

Go to [Optimize] and there i see at the bottom of the miniscreen [Crunch headers (XM format only)]...just wondering what it does and how to make it work (or if it is not implemented yet).

From a quick look at the code it looks like this button is not functional. The original intention was probably to shorten the variable-length headers in XM files (the song header and the instrument headers) if any of the information in those headers can be omitted (like the tail of the order list, which is by defautl always 256 bytes long), kinda like what BoobieSqueezer does.
