LZW text compression

The calculator compresses an input text using the LZW algorithm. On output, it creates a compressed message in binary form. You can download it as a binary file. For those who want to study the logic of the LZW compression algorithm, it will be useful to study the log of the algorithm and the phrase dictionary that is created in the process.
