An efficient implementation of a Huffman code can be based on the Shannon-Fano construction. An important question is exactly how complex is such an implementation. In the past authors have considered this question assuming an ordered source symbol alphabet. In the case of the compression of blocks of binary symbols this ordering must be performed explicitly and it turns out to be the complexity bottleneck.
