The huffman package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

A simple and pure Haskell implementation of the Huffman encoding algorithm.

The huffman function provides the original O(n log n) algorithm implemented with a priority queue. If the input symbols are sorted by probability, the O(n) huffmanSorted function can be used instead.
