The data structure of Huffman codes and its application to efficient encoding and decoding of Huffman codes are studied in detail. The tree structure is presented by a two-dimensional array which can be applied for the decoding of Huffman codes as a state transition table of the finite-state decoding automaton. Inversion produces a one-dimensional state transition table of the semiautonomous finite-state sequential machine which can be used as a Huffman encoder with a push-down stack. The encoding and decoding procedures are simple and efficient. It is not only possible to implement by simple hardware but is also applicable to software implementation.
