    IDEA: Huffman compression function

    A function to compress a text file (other file types could be used alternatively) using huffman compression. Points could be given for elegance, speed, and compression.

    Sounds like a great idea but don't just limit it to huffman. Any type of compression would be awesome. I'm in anyways.

    Haven't we already done a text/data compression contest?

    We have some newer members now, and some members with more knowledge. It's not a bad idea.
