compress() and uncompress()

Suppose a "person" used the Omnis compress() function to compress the data of 400,000 records.

Now suppose this "person" did not read the information on the uncompress() function until after this was done and only then noticed that you need to supply the original uncompressed data size as a parameter of the uncompress() function.  Note that the documentation for the compress() function does not say that you should save the uncompressed size when you use compress().

Any idea how to uncompress your data at this point?
