LZW Based Compressed Pattern Matching
Compressed pattern matching is an emerging research area that addresses the following problem: given a file in compressed format and a pattern, report the occurrence(s) of the pattern in the file with minimal (or no) decompression. In this paper, we report our work on compressed pattern matching in LZW compressed files. The reported work is based on Amir's well-known "almost-optimal" algorithm but has been improved to search not only the first occurrence of the pattern but also all other occurrences. The improvements also include the multipattern matching and a faster implementation for socalled "simple patterns". Extensive experiments have been conducted to test the search performance and to compare with the BWT-based compressed pattern matching algorithms. The results showed that our method is competitive among the best compressed pattern matching algorithms. LZW is one of the most efficient and popular compression algorithms used extensively and our method ...
