Falkkin is working on a Java Huffman encoder...

Moved only by the will to serve, I propose him an example of what he could do if he did that in Perl... :-)

$"=$/=$_;map{$0{$_}++}split//,$_=<>;@0=map{[$_,$0{$_},$_]}keys%0; $/=1+1;until(@0==1){@0=sort{$$b[1]<=>$$a[1]}@0;$t=pop@0;$p=pop@0; push@0,[[$$t[0],$$p[0]],$$t[1]+$$p[1],$$t[$/].$$p[$/]];map{map{$t {$_}=$;%$/.$t{$_}}split//;$;++}$$t[$/],$$p[$/]}s/(.)/$t{$1}/gs;sub _{my$t=pop;if(ref$t){my@t=map{if(!ref$$t[$_]){1,unpack"b8",$$t[$_]} else{0,""}}0,1;"@t[0,$/,1]"._($$t[0])._($$t[1])."$t[-1]"}}print pack"sB*",length,_($0[0][0]).$_

(This was one of my "helpers" for OPC5)
Corresponding Huffman decoder to be posted soon.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
