Decode binary code by arithmetic decoding
decodes the binary arithmetic code in

len symbols. The input
the statistics of the source by listing the number of times each symbol of the source
alphabet occurs in a test data set.

Decode Sequence Using Arithmetic Code
Using a source with a two-symbol alphabet, produce a test data set in which 99% of the symbols are 1s. Encode 1000 symbols from this source to produce a code vector with less than 1000 elements. The actual number of elements in the encoded sequence varies depending on the particular random sequence.
Specify for symbol 1 from the source alphabet to occur 99 times in the test data set.
counts = [99 1];
Generate a random sequence of length 1000.
len = 1000; seq = randsrc(1,len,[1 2; .99 .01]);
Encode the random sequence. Then, decode the encoded sequence.
code = arithenco(seq,counts); dseq = arithdeco(code,counts,length(seq));
Verify that the decoded sequence matches the original random sequence.

code — Binary arithmetic code
nonnegative binary row vector
Binary arithmetic code, specified as a nonnegative binary row vector. This value
must be a binary arithmetic code produced by the
counts — Statistics of symbols
positive numeric vector
Statistics of symbols, specified as a positive numeric vector. This input specifies the number of times each symbol of the source alphabet occurs in a test data set.
len — Length of sequence
Length of the sequence to decode, specified as a positive scalar.
arithdeco function uses the algorithm described in  .
