     Data Compression is a one of the most renowned branches of the Computer Science. Over the years, a lot of research has been done in this field to compress data into numerous ways and many standards have been developed. Data Compression can be defined as reducing the amount of storage space required to store given amount of data. Data compression comes with lots of advantages, it saves storage space, bandwidth, cost and TIME required to transmit data from one place to another. In this article we will throw light on Huffman Coding for data compression.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
