__init__.py - Python package initializtion code for bitfile. arcode.py - File containing a Class implementing the arithmetic encoding and decoding algorithms. COPYING - GNU General Public License v3 README - Package documentation sample.py - Sample usage. setup.py - distutils setup file.
Install the BitFile package prior to installing this package.
This package uses distutils. The package may be installed with the following command:
python setup.py install
arcode.py is fully documented with docstrings. Use your favorite tool for generating documentation from docstrings.
arcode.py also contains a simple unit test, which may be performed when the package is executed with the following command: python arcode.py
sample.py demonstrates usage of the ArithmaticCode methods for encoding and decoding files.
The following commands will encode a file: import arcode:
ar = arcode.ArithmeticCode(use_static_model) ar.encode_file(input_file, output_file)
Where input_file and output_file are the names of the file to be encoded and file that will contain the results of the encoding.
The following commands will decode a file: import arcode:
ar = arcode.ArithmeticCode(use_static_model) ar.decode_file(input_file, output_file)
Where input_file and output_file are the names of the file to be decoded and file that will contain the results of the decoding.
- Add/Verify support for Python 3.x.
- Add/Verify support for file-like objects.
