Huffman Encoding : Java Glossary

Huffman Encoding
Huffman encoding is a simple compression technique. You first calculate the frequency of each of the different letters of the alphabet (including symbols and digits). Then you assign short bit codes to the most frequently used letters, and longer codes to less frequently used letters.

WinZip uses Huffman encoding for files without repeating strings, e.g. files of random numbers expressed in ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange).
