This paper presents a new and efficient data compression algorithm, namely, the adaptive character wordlength (ACW) algorithm, which can be used as complementary algorithm to statistical compression techniques. In such techniques, the characters in the source file are converted to a binary code, where the most common characters in the file have the shortest… CONTINUE READING
