Fixed Length Keys

This is the simplest key type. If you are not sure what key type to use, choose this. Key type 0 is for fixed length keys that have little chance for significant leading character redundancy. Even if there is a possibility of key compression, you may still choose key type 0 if you wish to avoid the increased code size (about 4k bytes) or increased computation required to process the compressed keys.
