In your function it wasn't clear to me why you were adding the 'expand' atom
to the destination list T. Maybe something like this could do:
decompress(Bin) when is_binary(Bin) ->
decompress(<<0, Count, Tail/binary>>, Acc) ->
decompress(Tail, [<<0:(Count * 8)>> | Acc]);
decompress(<<Head, Tail/binary>>, Acc) ->
decompress(Tail, [Head | Acc]);
decompress(<<>>, Acc) ->
1> zrle:decompress(<<1, 0, 5, 2, 3, 4, 0, 3>>).
