Hi Judy,

There's different ways to this.

the most common is runtime encoding of a dictionary. The question is 
whether you have a fixed
encoding or a variable encoding. How does teh data present itself?

For data compression and related subjects, this is collected either in a 
scan-pass of the different
strings, or on the fly as you encode the data. 

Look at dictionary based compression. you'll find different techniques. 
Shannon codes, etc...

If however you have the luck of having regularly encoded data, it's 

Let me know what you need, i've done a bit of this in encoding, codecs, 
and a recent dictionary
tool for rev.
