arithmetic-coding

npm JavaScript Style Guide Coveralls travis build status License

Installation

Install as module for API usage:

npm i arithmetic-coding

Or install as global CLI:

npm i -g arithmetic-coding

API

From file path:

const ariCoding = require('arithmetic-coding');
// Encode from file
ariCoding.encode(path.resolve('/txt/long.txt'), path.resolve('/txt/long-encoded.txt'));
// Decode from file
ariCoding.decode(path.resolve('/txt/long-encoded.txt'), path.resolve('/txt/long-decoded.txt'));

From Buffer:

let data = Buffer.from('Example data', 'utf8');
// Encode from Buffer
let encoded = encode.encodeFromBuffer(data);
console.log(`encoded = ${encoded}`);
// Decode from Buffer
let decoded = decode.decodeFromBuffer(encoded);
console.log(`decoded = ${decoded}`);
