Another idea I have is that store offset in each JEntry is not necessary to
have benefit of binary search. Namely what if we store offsets in each 8th
JEntry and length in others? The speed of binary search will be about the
same: overhead is only calculation offsets in the 8-entries chunk. But
lengths will probably repeat.
With best regards,
