File Information

A simple (de)compression program using Run Length Encoding.

Compression is done that easy:
compressedData = rle(originalData);

originalData = rle(compressedData);


This file inspired Sequence Length Encoder (Seqle, Similar To Rle) and Bmp Compression Using Rle8.

MATLAB release MATLAB 6.5 (R13)

But when I'm decompressing the compressed image I'm getting back an one dimensional row vector. How can this prb be solved?

I used binary image for tedting.

It's short but efficient.

Simple, yet very quick and effective, thanks

Very nice compact code. One then just need to use an entropy coder to compress the runs length.

A note that this function does not find the number of zeros in a run (if used for JPEG coding); otherwise, this is great.
