Huffman Tree Generator


This webapp generates Huffman Trees out of short snippets of text. The process of building Huffman trees is called Huffman Coding. It is a lossless data compression algorithm. The technique consists in building a weight-ordered binary tree of characters so that each character correspons to a binary values. The higher the frequency of the character in the text, the shorter its encoded representation should be in order to optimize savings.
