    Anbu Kaveeswarar provides what appears to be the text of a patent
    application. The details seem unclarified by the descriptive text he
    provides (computer pseudocode might be more useful), but if it is
    only a circumlocution for well-known prior art like Huffman encoding,
    no examiner will grant a patent. Even if the proposal is innovative,
    a mathematical algorithm ought not to be patentable.

    Furthermore, asking for freewill help with a proposal intended only
    to enrich the proponent seems contrary to the spirit of mutual
    cooperation generally expected on this listserv.

    Kind regards,
    Erik Pedersen
