Huffman coding is a lossless data compression algorithm. The idea is to assign variable-length codes to input characters, lengths of the assigned codes are based on the frequencies of corresponding characters. The most frequent character gets the smallest code and the least frequent character gets the largest code.


In computer science and information theory, a Huffman code is a particular type of optimal prefix code that is commonly used for lossless data compression.
