Can we compose a Tamil Morse-code ?

  1. Start with a frequency count of Tamil letters from various sources
  2. Build a probability distribution from the frequency counts
  3. Build a Huffman code using the above distribution
  4. Each letter of Tamil alphabet gets a Morse code : 0 = '.', 1 - '-'.
    புள்ளி, கோடு.

Isn't 30 symbols enough?

I think you are saying ceil(log2(30)) = 5bits is sufficient, by virtue of Abugida / Uyir-Mei syllabic nature of Tamil. However when expressed in code, it may require some complex decoding logic.

This is a contentious matter! Ithanai sariyaaga seivatharkku comment-section-ai thaandi muyarchikka vendum; yenn ninga ithanai oru script-aaga meroklla koodathu @ssurenr ? tamil.utf8.splitMeiUyir can help!

ஆம். 247 மோர்ஸ் சிம்பல்களை நினைவில் வைப்பதை விட 30 எளிதல்லவா. டீகோட் செய்யும்போது வரும் சிக்கலுக்கு ஒரு எடுத்துக்காட்டு தர இயலுமா?
