Example text

Now, each symbol in the source sequence is replaced by the corresponding binary code. A consequence of this frequency-based procedure is that shorter codes are assigned to frequent symbols, and longer ones to rare symbols. Decompression is performed using the symbol–code table, scanning the encoded binary string and emitting a symbol as soon as its code is recognized: 1. while the encoded sequence has not finished (a) Set the current code to be empty (b) while the current code does not correspond to any code in the table (i) Add the next binary digit in the encoded sequence to the current code (c) Output to the decompressed sequence the symbol corresponding to the code just recognized Note that the code generation procedure is such that no code in the table is a prefix of another code, which ensures that as soon as a code is recognized left-to-right it is the correct one: neither a longer code can be recognized, nor recognition can stop before recognizing a code or having recognized a wrong code.

The marks are the outcome of an artificial process accomplished or regulated by the man itself, and intended to confer representativeness to the res portata (‘what is brought’, the content). As a consequence, the document is not the object in itself nor the mark in itself, but rather the object on which the man has acted.

Microfilms have a limited quality, they are delicate and can be read only by specific instruments. Such instruments, and the making of microfilms itself, were very costly, and for this reason microfilm technology was soon abandoned in favor of scanning by means of computer systems. Those instruments are no longer produced, and the existing ones are progressively disappearing, so the preservation problem strikes back. Even worse, in some cases the administrations, after transposing on microfilms their legacy documents, have destroyed the originals to make room in their archives.
