  Prefix code - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A prefix code, also known as a prefix-free code, comma-free code or instantaneous code, is a code constructed so that dividing the code word into two pieces cannot result in the first being a code word.
This property permits the proper framing of transmitted code words when (a) external synchronization is provided to identify the start of the first code word in a sequence of code words and (b) no uncorrected errors occur in the symbol stream.
prefix codes are a form of entropy encoding used in lossless data compression.

 Huffman coding - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term refers to the use of a variable-length code table for encoding a source symbol (such as a character in a file) where the variable-length code table has been derived in a particular way based on the estimated probability of occurrence for each possible value of the source symbol.
LZW coding can also often be more efficient, particularly when the input symbols are not independently-distributed, because it does not depend on encoding each input symbol one at a time (instead, it batches up a variable number of input symbols into each encoded syntax element).
Huffman coding with unequal letter costs is the generalization in which this assumption is no longer assumed true: the letters of the encoding alphabet may have non-uniform lengths, due to characteristics of the transmission medium.

 Entropy-coding system - Patent 4939583
With this provision of a cluster code, as compared with a system in which a code type judge bit is added at the first bit position of the Huffman code and the run length code, the coding efficiency is improved and the total number of the bits after the coding operation can be reduced.
Incidentally, the Huffman code switch signal (e) and the code validity signal (f) are generated from the 0 detect signal (c) and the signal obtained by delaying the 0 detect signal (c) by one clock in the control signal generate circuit 14.
Incidentally, the code validity signal (e) is generated through an NAND operation between the 0 detect signal (c) and the signal obtained by delaying the 0 detect signal (c) by one clock in the control signal generate circuit 14.

The numbers are a prefix code so that no number has an initial segment that is an existing shorter number.
This code is used to dial into the country specified; each country also has an international call prefix used to dial out of the country.
This is similar to the use of a trunk code in countries such as the United States, which uses a leading "1" to indicate that a national area code follows, except that the trunk code has been absorbed into the area code, for presentational reasons.

Think of the three parts like a street address, where the area code is the city, the prefix is the street and the line number is the house.
When a new area code is needed, a decision must be made as to whether the existing area code should be split or the new area code overlaid on the existing one.

 Encyclopedia: ZIP Code
ZIP Codes are numbered with the first digit representing a certain group of U.S. states, the second and third digits together representing a region in that group (or perhaps a large city), and the fourth and fifth digits representing more specific areas, such as small towns or regions of that city.
For example, ZIP codes beginning with 0 and 1 are in use in New York; beginning with 2 and 5, in the District of Columbia; and beginning with 7 and 8, in Texas.
For example, ZIP code 03750 is for Etna, NH, but Etna is not a municipality, it is actually a village district in the town of Hanover, New Hampshire (Zip Code 03755).

 Indexed-indirect addressing using prefix codes - Patent 4531200
The prefix codes and index values are merely catenated to provide multiple levels of indexed indirection, each pair of prefix codes and suffix values surrounding the instruction like a matched pair of parentheses.
The architectural cost of the invention is low because, apart from the one or two fixed code points taken from the op-code space, only the actual use of indexed indirection in a particular instance incurs the extra instruction length required by the prefix code and the index value.
When one or more prefix code bytes PR are detected in the instruction stream, their occurrences are recorded.

 Coding   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The prefix property allows us to identify the end of the first (and second etc.) code word in a data stream immediately, and is required to be able to decode a stream of data unambiguously without look-ahead.
While the prefix property seems to be quite strict, some fundamental results show that such codes are all that we need to consider for the purposes of inference.
Arithmetic coding places a limit on the accuracy required; the price is a small loss in coding efficiency and Langdon (1984) states "less than 4%" for the choices in that paper.

 Lecture 24: Huffman Codes
In fact, this is an optimal character code for this file (which is not to say that the file is not further compressible by other means).
Prefix codes are useful because they make a stream of bits unambiguous; we simply can accumulate bits from a stream until we have completed a codeword.
The solution is adaptive Huffman coding, which builds the prefix tree incrementally in such a way that the coding always is optimal for the sequence characters already seen.

said control means includes means for controlling the insertion of the code signal held in said further code register means and the character signal held in said last character holding means into the prefix code field and the character field, respectively, of the location of said memory means addressed by said assigned code signal.

A binary prefix code is a code in which every symbol (for example, letters of the alphabet) is assigned a distinct binary code, and no code is a prefix of any other code.
Suppose that the code for symbol s_1 is a prefix of the code for symbol s_2.
Since it is a prefix of the code for s_1, it must pass through the leaf labeled s_1, which is a contradiction, since a leaf has no children.

 New Area Code, Prefix for HSC Phone Numbers
The area code and prefix changes will not affect campus five-digit dialing, however, and the current (213) 342-XXXX HSC phone numbers will continue to work from off-campus until Jan. 16, 1999, also the end of the grace period for the area code split.
The move to a new 442 prefix for HSC was prompted by the upcoming split of the 213 area code, said Larry Nelson, telecommunications manager for USC's Information Services Division (formerly telecommunications).
Area code 818 was recently split into 818 and 626; area code 714 will soon split into 714 and 949.
