The size of data related to a wide range of applications is growing rapidly. Typically a character requires 1 Byte for storing. Compression of the data is very important for data management. Data compression is the process by which the physical size of data is reduced to save on memory or improve traffic speeds on a website. The purpose of data compression is to make a file smaller by minimizing the amount of data present. When a file is compressed, it can be reduced to as little as 25% of its original size which makes it easier to send to others over the internet.
