Hi,



I just sent a patch allowing to do that.



The following command line using twice http1 (the second time with a dummy parameter) will generate an output containing both runs.



$ python compare_compressors.py -c http1 -c http1=dummy ../http_samples/mnot/wikipedia.org.har

What would be helpful is the ability to define multiple compression runs per compressor subdirectory... But the current design works fine too. Pretty straightforward really.

Perhaps, but they're not really easy to disentangle; if people are interested in the different combinations, they can easily factor the compressor code to cover the space (as we're already starting to see with James' work).

Cheers,

(of course, if you want to tackle this, a pull request would be welcome)
