Hi,
I have a string which I want to encrypt into a single character, and I also want to decrypt that single character into it's original string. Is there any algorithm to achieve this task or is there any way to perform this operation?

Thanks

Makes no sense.

Is lossy compression acceptable? :laugh:

I think it should be acceptable as long as you provide a 'gainy decompression' algo, to get back what was lost! :P

we need to be able to vote on comments - 'gainy decompression' has gotta be worth a 5!

Generally speaking no: you cannot establish a biunivocal relation between a set and another one having less elements.
