I was reading an article about data compression in computer when i faced this sentence:
It tends to be easy to compress a string that has runs of repeated characters by techniques such as move-to-front transform and run-length encoding.
I know this is about computers but i don't think that the part "having runs of" is about computers. So, What does it mean?
I also appreciate if you give some examples of using it. I searched by didn't find anything! The sentence itself was found here.
