Although tedious, we could extend this counting technique to discover that the bit
pattern consisting of sixteen 1s represents the value 65535, which confirms our
claim that any integer in the range from 0 to 65535 can be encoded using 16 bits.
The TIFF collection of standards does include data compression techniques,
most of which are designed for compressing images of text documents in
facsimile applications. These use variations of run-length encoding to take
advantage of the ...
To resolve such problems, a variety of encoding techniques have been
developed to allow the detection and even the correction of errors. Today,
because these techniques are largely built into the internal components of a
computer system, ...
