BlockSize - Controls this size of compression blocks used when compressing files during build

Using a larger block size can achieve higher compression, however larger block sizes can have negative impact on performance.

- The build process slows down with larger block sizes
- Startup time and file reads for applications will be slower with large block sizes
- More memory is required at runtime when larger block sizes are used

BlockSize can be specified in two places:

1. Package.ini file: in this case, the block size becomes the default for all files in the project unless otherwise specified
2. ##Attributes.ini: in this case, the block size overrides the block size for the present directory and all subdirectories. In the manner you can use different block sizes for different directories within a single project.


' The default block size is 64k
