How long does it take for High Compression with MobilePocket Creator

Hi,
I understand that this section is for Calibre, but I could not find one for MobilePocket Creator.

I am compiling a dictionary (HTML 120MB) into .PRC format with MobilePocket Creator. I selected HIGH COMPRESSION, and it has been 15 hours.

The first progress bar shows 46%, the second one says "compression pass 5"

How many PASSes does it have to go through before it finishes? Is it 7 or 10 or 20?

Thanks.

But remember, it's going to take longer to decompress and more battery to read this book. It's not worth it.

I think the closest you'll find here at mobileread is the Mobi forum.

The last pass was probably 12 or 13. Took about 36 hours.

I don't have a device yet, so I don't know how much the decompression affects. Still waiting for Kindle Touch.

Thanks.
