Huffman Coding

The Huffman coding algorithm will be used for lossless compression in this project. For more information a reference to wikipedia is given here. The project will consist of three parts:

  1. Creating a class to handle text parsing and character frequency analysis given a file. The output will be a file with the frequencies
  2. Creating the huffman tree given the frequency file.
  3. Compressing a file using the huffman tree
You can’t perform that action at this time.
