Abstract

The concept of compression comes from the need to store data using as less space as possible and to ease transfer of data through a channel. The proposed algorithm deals with compression of text files using character replacement technique. For every string of length six, it is compressed by assigning a single character to it, maintaining a dictionary. The dictionary is used to decompress the encoded file. This gives a good compression ratio irrespective of the content of the text file.
