As with all of our utilities, you can get the command line syntax by 
running the utility with no arguments.

The rule for which compression setting to use is roughly:
For documents smaller than 10-15mb (assuming a complete, OT+NT text), we 
usually use book-level compression. That covers almost all Bibles and 
many commentaries.

For documents larger than that, we use chapter compression. That covers 
medium to large commentaries and extremely large Bibles.

For LD modules, I don't think we have ever used anything other than the 
default 200-entry block compression. And GenBooks don't yet support
