Huffman coding program for compression and decompression of text files.
If you're a Rust programmer, huffcomp can be installed with
$ cargo install huffcomp
huffcomp can be build from source code using the Rust compiler.
$ git clone https://github.com/AlexRiosJ/huffcomp.git $ cd huffcomp $ cargo build --release
It is possible for huffcomp to compress any kind of files that have UTF-8 valid encoding. (e.g. *.txt, *.c, *.rs, *.java, *.js)
To compress the file:
$ huffcomp -c <filename>
This command will generate a HUFF file (*.huff) which will have the same name as the original but with the huffcomp extension concatenated at the end.
To decompress a file it must have this extension and be compressed by huffcomp previously.
To decompress the file:
$ huffcomp -d <huffcomp_file>
