Fast Computation of Huffman Codes

The generation of Huffman codes is used in many applications, among them the DEFLATE compression algorithm. The classical way to compute these codes uses a heap data structure. This approach is fairly efficient, but traditional software implementations contain lots of branches that are data-dependent and thus hard for general-purpose CPU hardware to predict. On modern processors with deep...
