A detailed algorithm for fast text compression, related to the PPM method, simplifies the modeling phase by eliminating the escape mechanism, and speeds up coding by using a combination of quasi-arithmetic coding and Rice coding. The authors provide details of the use of quasi-arithmetic code tables, and analyze their compression performance. The Fast PPM method is shown experimentally to be almost twice as fast as the PPMC method, while giving comparable compression
