Inverse Huffman --- Introduction ---

Inverse Huffman is an exercise over the optimal encoding of a system of information, by a code of variable lengths. But the style of the exercise is in the inverse direction: the server gives you a code, and asks you to find a distribution of probabilities such that the given code is optimal.

Choose the parameters of the exercise: size of the system = (between 3 and 52), radix of code = (between 2 and 16). The most recent version
