FPC: a floating-point compressor

FPC is a very fast lossless compressor with better results than most traditional algorithms:

FPC compresses linear sequences of IEEE 754 double-precision floating-point values by sequentially predicting each value, xoring the true value with the predicted value, and leading-zero compressing the result.
