Loserar

File expansion tool

Loserar is a small utility for expanding files, the opposite of file compression tools like Winzip, 7-zip or WinRAR. It is written in C. I wrote the tool as a joke after sitting through a lecture on Huffman Encoding, but turns out that creating large files of an arbitary size is quite useful when you're working on networking applications.

Loserar will expand a file to a factor of your choosing by filling it with garbage and can compress it again to the original file.
