I'm wondering if english is not Rick's best language ("string setting" is
just not quite the correct phrase). So, given that, I also wonder if by
"least compression" he means "compressed into least number of bytes"???
If that is the case, then he actually wants "best compression" (most
compression) or "flac --best" and his question makes perfect sense.
Rick, I hope this helps and does not cause offense.
