Huffman data compression

The F#.NET Journal just published an article about data compression:

"Data compression algorithms are not only very useful in practice but are also extremely compelling pragmatic examples of programming theory. The popular Huffman data compression algorithm is from the family of entropy encoding compression algorithms. This article walks through the construction of a simple array-based Huffman compressor and decompressor written entirely in F# before converting the functions to handle sequences on-demand in order to provide incremental compression and decompression..."
